PRIDE Program
Personal Responsibility in Daily Effort (P.R.I.D.E.)
Junior High Schools

All six Gilbert junior high schools and the Gilbert Learning Center (GLC) utilize the P.R.I.D.E. program. P.R.I.D.E. is designed to teach students how to be responsible and successful in school. The success of the program is not possible without the help and support of the administration, faculty, staff and most importantly, the parents of our junior high students. It is the experience of the junior highs that all students benefit from the effects of PRIDE as it raises the academic expectation of the entire student body.

How does it work?

At the start of each class, each student will be prepared with and be responsible for the following:

  • On time for class
  • Completed homework
  • Pen/pencil paper
  • Assignment calendar and any other required materials

Each teacher will stamp the student's sheet with either a "Yes" or write an "X" in the appropriate column. If a student receives a "Yes" in every class, he/she will be released from school after 8th hour. If a student receives a "No" in any class, he/she will stay the full day and attend responsibility hour (9th hour).

Each student is provided with an Assignment Calendar at the beginning of the school year to record weekly homework assignments and other important activities or events. All Gilbert junior highs participate in the P.R.I.D.E. program.

What is Platinum Status?

Platinum status is a student's reward for going 8 weeks without a "No". Students who have earned Platinum status will no longer be required to get stamped each hour.
