Humble High School 9th Grade Campus
The Ninth-Grade Building concept developed primary as a means of providing more individual attention to students in the 9th grade. During the first year of using this type of campus, results showed that failure rates for freshman dropped 50% in comparison to the previous year when freshman shared a campus with the upper classmen.1
One of the innovative strategies used at the Humble Ninth Grade Campus the first year was to use popular rock songs during the time between classes.
