Academic Design Program Ms. Hoyos

The Academic Design Program (ADP- and see website hyperlink previously) at WHS is a three year HANDS-ON, COLLABORATIVE, college-prep pathway for grades 10-12. We require our students to take A-G English and history classes with us each year with an option for Algebra 1, Geometry, and Algebra 2. We use the Design-Based Learning methodology, a research-based and scientifically proven method which creates a mind-body learning connection for optimum retention of information. We have our own student council, take field trips to colleges, and have a smaller homelike feel on this larger high school campus. In the fall of 2019 we started to house and offer first availability to the CISCO Networking Academy.

We just might be the best fit for you!

Grade Level Coordinator - Viviana Hoyos [email protected]




I am available from 7:30 AM-3PM to answer any questions you may have in person, via email, and Google Chat with your school account.  Yet, you may leave me notes outside of office hours, and I will answer when available. When we are in-person, come see me before school from 7:30 AM, after school until 3:15 PM, or leave me a note and I will call you out of class or find us around campus during lunch or passing period.  I will also update this web page periodically to keep you informed with grade level pertinent information.
