Student Job Description


At HopeTree Academy, students are expected to adhere to a unique set of  35 work habits, social skills, and life values called the Student Job Description.

These 35 qualities were gleaned from interviews with real-world workplace supervisors, and are clustered into four “power tools” for students. They serve as the basis of HopeTree Academy’s Student Management System. Students are evaluated each class period on how well they adhere to each of these “power tools.”  The Student Job Description also defines the student’s class participation grade in every course they take.  Class participation accounts for 20% of a student’s grade in all non-vocational courses, and 50% in all vocational courses. Performance on the Student Job Description also helps determine the amount of “profit” a vocational class student earns after completing each hands-on project.
