Academic Support Enrichment

The Academic Support and Enrichment (ASE) program has been created to provide students additional assistance for their coursework and high-stakes standardized testing. As an aid to support student success, we meet three times a week for thirty minutes during the school year.

Enrichment opportunities such as Leadership, Math Team, Model UN, Academic Bowl, Peer Helpers, SAT Prep, college application process, Yearbook, and Newspaper are also available.

For additional questions about our ASE program, please contact Mr. Nate Fisher, the assistant principal and ASE coordinator for Lassiter High School.



We encourage you to read about the Common Core Standards that the state of Georgia, along with 47 other states, has adopted. The Common Core standards will provide a unified set of standards that will be used from state to state, which will prepare students for success in college and/or the 21st century workplace. You can also read the letter from our district office for more details.

Georgia Milestone Assessments

All students will take the Georgia Milestones EOC after completing courses in Coordinate Algebra, Analytic Geometry, US History, Economics, Biology, Physical Science, 9th Grade Literature and Composition, and American Literature and Composition. Results of the EOC are used for diagnostic, remedial, and accountability purposes to gauge the quality of education in the state and also count as part of the student's final grade in the course. The EOC counts as 20% of the final grade.
