Student Services Vision

The vision of the MHMS Office of Student Services is to provide comprehensive, effective and efficient services to the students, staff and families of our school to ensure that all students maximize their skills and reach their highest level of potential in terms of academic achievement and social and emotional well-being. Through the provision of accessible, needs-based services to our students and families, we seek to strengthen the developmental assets needed for the healthy development of all young people. This vision comes from our core belief that in providing education, training and support to our students, families and staff, there is a direct and positive impact on the larger community.

The HCPSS Black Student Achievement Program (BSAP) works in closing the achievement gap evident in the patterns of data between black students and the student population at large. Over the years the BSAP, established in 1986, has been a valuable resource to the school system, black students, their parents and the community. Through a coordinated system of services, BSAP guides black students to develop education, career and personal/social competencies.

Targets

The ultimate goal of the HCPSS BSAP is to help black students excel as leaders, conquer challenges of the 21st century and become college and career ready upon high school graduation. BSAP staff encourage students and parents to strive for:

  • Report card grades B or above in all courses
  • Enrollment in G/T and AP classes
  • Enrollment in SAT prep courses
  • Exceeding passing scores on each HSA test
  • Zero disciplinary referrals
  • Involvement in clubs and/or athletic teams
  • Involvement in community service

Six Ps

BSAP students follow the 6 Ps:

  1. Proud – Feel great satisfaction when you have achieved your goal.
  2. Prompt – Be on time without delay.
  3. Persistent – Never give up when things seem difficult.
  4. Productive – Always produce quality work.
  5. Polite – Show good manners towards others in behavior and speech.
  6. Prepared – Be organized, equipped and ready to learn.

Accident and Medical Insurance

Accident Insurance

The school system does not carry medical insurance for accidents that occur at school, including non-sport related injuries, such as trips and falls, physical education injuries, and recess/playground injuries. Thus, parents are encouraged to enroll students in the accident insurance program offered through HCPSS.
