Junior - Senior Privileges - Form

  • Privileges are a special right granted to a student who exhibits academic responsibility and good school citizenship.

    Junior/Senior Privileges allow students the freedom to use available facilities for worthwhile purposes during unassigned time.  These purposes may include:  pursuit of academic assignments in Library, Computer Center, 2nd floor silent study area, front courtyard, center court yard and cafeteria. Junior/Senior Privileges for an academic year may be granted at the start of the marking period or revoked at any time. It is the student’s responsibility to submit a completed application and waiver for approval to the Dean of Students. Junior/Senior Privileges may not be granted or will be revoked under, but not limited to, the following circumstances:

    • Junior/Senior Privilege at Amherst High School is an option for qualified 11th & 12th grade students.  These students must maintain a minimum grade of 72 or higher in each course in order to continue Junior/Senior Privilege once it has been granted.  Prior parental approval must be given before students can participate in the program.  Those students who do not qualify will be assigned to a study hall.
