Welcome to the 9th Grade Eyrie*
The Eagle Eyrie (EER•ee) - (noun) a nest or stronghold of an eagle built on a cliff or other high place.
What is the Eyrie
The Naples High School Eagles’ Eyrie offers all incoming freshmen an opportunity to become acclimated to high school student life. Through the Eyrie we promote a sense of family, community, and support to all students new to the high school experience.
All freshmen are assigned to small learning communities of core team teachers. This small learning community facilitates individual mentor and tutor opportunities for students.
Weekly team meetings during a common planning period allow the core team of teachers, assistant principal and counselor to discuss student issues, plan activities and develop lesson plans.
Parent conferences are scheduled during this time to allow core teachers, as well as, the assistant principal and counselor to attend.
Each team consists of approximately 150 freshmen representing a cross section of the class. All ninth grade students are assigned to a team. Each team consists of a Math, English, and Science teacher. Students are enrolled in the above courses as well as HOPE (P.E.) and two elective courses.
There are only two kinds of people in the world: Golden Eagles and those who want to be Golden Eagles!
Our MissionOur mission is to insure every 9th grade student is “known, valued, and inspired.” No student will be anonymous at Naples High School.
