Lead Teacher/Counselor: Ms. Chavez
Principal: Ms. Cruz
Hello, Welcome to Roybal!
The Academy of Educational Empowerment (Medicine & Law) - AEE
Your journey is on its way!
AEE is managed by the Lead Teacher, Ms. Chavez (Rm. 142) and Roybal's Principal, Ms. Cruz (Main Office). Both Ms. Chavez and Ms. Cruz are available to help you navigate through AEE & Roybal.
Ms. Chavez is also the AEE counselor. As your school counselor, she can help you with your schedule, your transcript, summer school, and adult school classes. You and Ms. Chavez will work collaboratively throughout the course of your high school career to ensure that you are on track for graduation and that you are college & career ready upon graduation.
Once your classes are underway, keep track of your grades/progress by checking your student account on Schoology. In addition to utilizing Schoology as a self-monitoring tool, make it a habit to check in with each of your teachers once a week to find out what advice they may have that can help you improve in their class. Keeping in touch with your teachers will help your grades improve and serve as a reflection of your commitment to your education. Remember, final grades are issued every 10 weeks. By catching problems early, appropriate interventions can be utilized to prevent your grade from falling below college and graduation standards.
AEE is committed to helping students become college-bound leaders. As an academy, AEE develops and fosters student interest in the fields of Law and Medicine through career exploration assignments and activities in advisory classes. We celebrate student leadership characteristics like: honesty, integrity, respect and academic excellence. These characteristics are acknowledged through AEE assemblies that spotlight our leaders every quarter. Furthermore, we invite guest speakers who currently practice in the field of Medicine and Law to our campus who can engage the students, share their stories and career descriptions, and foster interest in the fields of law and medicine.
AEE recently incorporated Project Lead the Way curriculum and offers a series of Bio-Medical classes that will help educate and empower our students and prepare them for the rigors of college classes with 21st century skills that may have a focus on medicine and biology. These courses are embedded into your instructional program in grades 9, 10, and 11 as part of your college prep course. In addition to Project Lead the Way, AEE has also partnered with the Puente Learning Center for the 2019-2020 academic school year. Puente Learning Center is working with our 9th and 10th grade advisory classes to provide college and career curriculum.
Lastly, AEE will implement “Writing Across the Curriculum” to offer a network of support to our teachers and students by implementing a uniform method of teaching reading and writing. AEE has plans to revamp a Mentoring Program by creating a teacher-led club that will oversee Senior Mentors and the underclassmen they assist and guide through their high school journey.
