Home of the Mighty Panthers!
Hesperia High School operates on a traditional semester schedule consisting of two eighteen-week semesters. Students attend six 55-minute classes plus one 40-minute Seminar period. Along with the core subjects required for graduation, students can choose from an array of elective class options including, but not limited to Art, Band, and Computer Technology among others. Juniors and Seniors also have the option of attending the Newaygo County Career-Tech Center for an educational jump-start or dual-enrolling in college classes through MCC and other educational institutions.
Hesperia High School Mission:
The mission of Hesperia High school is to provide quality educational opportunities that empower all students to become responsible, enlightened and productive citizens today and in the future.
Hesperia High School Vision:
Reaching the heart, engaging the mind.
Hesperia High School Improvement Team has prepared this publication of the Student Handbook for the purpose of acquainting the student with a wide array of general information.
Accordingly, the standard term "student" is defined to include all persons who officially: (1) register and enroll on a full-time or part-time basis and (2) who maintain current enrollment status.
The standards of the student code of conduct, either academic or non-academic, in this publication apply to all students as described above.
Hesperia High School Improvement Team reserves the right to amend the student handbook at any time. It is and remains the responsibility of the student to review not only the student handbook, but also the School's website, www.hesp.net, for any amendments. If any provision of the handbook is later determined to be invalid, the resulting invalidity of that provision shall not affect the enforceability of the remaining provisions of the handbook.
The School-Community Health Alliance of Michigan has been striving to make all parents aware of their health insurance options.
The #1 reason families do not access health care is because they do not have insurance. Great gains have been made to get people insured this past year with the Healthy Michigan Plan (available to anyone below 133 percent of the federal poverty level) and the Health Insurance Marketplace (available to those above 133 percent).
Parents are able and encouraged to check on their children's academic information regularly. You can do this through Skyward's Parent Access Feature. Click the link below to go to the Skyward Parent Page.
