What is Discovering Opportunities ?

Discovering Opportunities (D.O.) is a program available to grade nine students at BHJH. D.O. offers a unique, flexible, team-centered approach to learning, providing students with essential skills and experiences.

The program is designed for academic students who may, for many different reasons, need re-engagement with school in order to reach their potential. Students participate in activities to enhance personal growth, academic skills, and career exploration. Students attend the core courses as a cohort and integrate with other classes for non-core subjects.

The program is built on strong partnerships with families, workplaces, and community organizations. See below for more detailed information...
