What is an average day like for our students?
7
The GAC students at the middle school/high school follow an 8 period day.
They have an advisory time during the 5th period where

they have a time to catch a breath, get help they need from their advisory teacher and sometimes have class meetings.

Students that are independent in any of their classes are either in a supervised classroom or in a room that is monitored.

They take a blend of classes like other schools in the Northwoods. Some of these classes are completely online, some are virtually monitored by teachers in

other schools and some of our students travel to another location for their learning such as the NWTC site in Aurora or Florence for the Fab Lab.
