Milton-Union High School students have been required to build their own Khan Academy accounts and use these on-line resources for course/subject support and SAT preparation during Focus (fifth period). Khan Academy provides an on-line, personalized learning resource for students of all ages.
"Khan Academy offers practice exercises, instructional videos, and a personalized learning dashboard that empower learners to study at their own pace in and outside of the classroom. We tackle math, science, computer programming, history, art history, economics, and more. Our math missions guide learners from kindergarten to calculus using state-of-the-art, adaptive technology that identifies strengths and learning gaps. We've also partnered with institutions like NASA, The Museum of Modern Art, The California Academy of Sciences, and MIT to offer specialized content." (Khan Academy Website)
Members of the Class of 2019 (current eleventh grade students) will be required to sit for a college entrance exam in the spring. Khan Academy provides students with a diagnostic solution to "meet learners where they are" for intervention and enrichment and SAT preparation. MUHS teachers supervise students using Khan Academy resources three times per week during Focus.
