At Schaumburg High School, we strive to provide academic support for all students, in order to enhance student success. While students are always encouraged to seek assistance from their academic teacher, a variety of resources are available for students seeking additional support. Please contact the student’s counselor for more information on the supports listed below.
Student grades are reported by semesters. Each semester is made up of 18 weeks. Parents are informed of their student’s progress at 6- and 12-week intervals. The 6- and 12-week in-progress grades may include special comments from the teacher. Parents of students having difficulty or doing unsatisfactory work are urged to meet with teachers and/or the student’s counselor to discuss improvement options. Specific dates of all student reports are in each school’s Calendar/Handbook. Additionally, all parents may view the status of their students in classes in which the teacher is using the Infinite Campus Parent Portal.
Schaumburg High School’s LIFT Program is a student mentorship program aimed at easing the transition to high school. Mentors are junior and senior students who have been selected based on their leadership qualities. Student mentors and visitors to the program conduct lessons a couple days a week for our freshman students during the first half of their lunch period. These lessons are focused on providing students with resources for a successful student career and helping students establish a sense of belonging at Schaumburg High School. LIFT Teachers also check academic progress and referring students to tutorial supports.
Student Services Office
Students work with their counselor to develop a personal academic plan based on their interests and goals. The counselor can also recommend other academic supports as needed. Administrators, counselors, psychologists, social workers, and support staff work hand-in-hand to personalize a student's academic supports. Students may be referred to the Calming Space or Transition Room
Student Support Team (SST)
Each SST consists of an administrator, counselors, and psychologist/social worker, which provides one point for parents and students to access support services. This team format provides an opportunity for staff to collaborate and to address attendance, behavior, and academic issues quickly and efficiently.
General Study Hall
All students with a free period are assigned a General Study Hall where they can quietly do work or seek other academic supports in the intervention hallway.
Tutoring for various subjects is available throughout the school day. Students are able to drop in for extra support as needed to ensure academic success. The following table shows specific times and locations where these supports are available. Students are always encouraged to talk to their teachers about specific issues in their class.
Athletic Study Hall
Student athletes may be assigned to a Guided Study Hall if their grades fall below the district standard. This study hall is designed to give your student athlete a quiet work environment and access to additional resources when needed.
SAT Suite Test Preparation Room
Students identified through our search process or requesting training for the SAT Suite may be assigned to our Test Prep Room. There they will receive additional strategies and materials in a smaller setting tailored to improve their test preparation.

Need Help, But Not Sure Where to Begin?
If a student has academic questions or difficulties they should contact their classroom teacher for assistance. Parents may contact teachers through email or by phone. Questions regarding scheduling, emotional health/wellness support, or post-secondary planning can also be addressed by a student’s counselor or administrator.
