Advanced Placement (AP) Courses

AP Tests See Huge Increases Over Last Decade, according to The 10th annual AP report .  The College Board says this is a tribute to the growing number of students who have embraced the opportunity to challenge themselves AND educators who have provided the help to prepare them.  

​Increasing the non-traditional AP student enrollment has been a mission at Eureka High School the past three years, and our results are mirroring the AP report.  As we have increased the AP enrollment, including students never before taking upper level courses, the success rate of students has also increased.  

Rockwood was recognized by the College Board for this accomplishment.  One of six Missouri schools named to the AP Honor Roll.

Any student is eligible to take an honors or AP course at Eureka High School?  We believe that each and every student has the potential to achieve at higher levels, than they have before.  If a student has interest in the subject and is willing to step outside their comfort zone, we are here to help. There are a variety of supports in place to help students succeed.  

Please contact us if you have questions about course selections.

Congratulations Abdi Haji - Beverly Hopkins Memorial Poetry Contest Finalist

Abdi Haji (Junior)

I am from

The deep jungles of Kakuma

Where men are more brave than the lions

Where women sing the warm Somali melodies

Where children come together to one spot with one call "Daka Daka"

Where we play until the moon moves to the middle of the sky or until we hear the calls of mom or dad

Where the trees are not very cordial when they slap and push you as you walk through them

Where villagers use their hands to hunt hyenas hungrily 

Where animals noisily hum, sing and scurry around our mud and stick house while we sleep

Where I wake up smelling the sweet baris and uji stew

Where mama' makes the tastiest basta makalongo a tongue can try

Where green grass sways like a glimmering emerald as we run barefoot on it playing a game of bolown

I am from a place where true freedom is given.

We experineced the food & culture of the Middle East as well as a Jewish Shabbat Service.

The Sounds of Spring

What sound lets you know spring is here?  Birds singing?  Rain falling?  Wind blowing?  For me I know spring has arrived the first time a leave the building in the evening and hear balls making contact with bats. 

Somehow it makes the grass greener and the sky more blue.  It is one of the happiest sounds I know.

HAVE A HAPPY AND SAFE SPRING BREAK!
