The Freshman Mentoring Program, Helping Young Peers Excel (H.Y.P.E.), was adopted at Reeds Spring High School in 2003. Freshman receive academic support and an opportunity to develop a relationship with an upper-classman that helps them with a smooth transition into high school. If you have general questions about your freshman son or daughter's experience within Reeds Spring High School, the HYPE Leader would be a great place to look for answers!
HYPE leaders are junior and senior students who choose to spend their privilege time during Guided Study Hall to check in with Freshmen students. They help them build study skills, get organized, complete homework, and develop relationships and opportunities at RSHS. Throughout the year, HYPE leaders organize events for Freshman ONLY to take part in.
HYPE mentors are responsible for leading group lessons during the first few weeks of school. The lessons are intended to help the freshmen transition to high school and adjust to the expectations placed on them.
The following presentations can be accessed by the HYPE Mentors to lead in the classroom lessons and discussions:
