Colleges are less concerned about grades and more interested in extracurricular activities, stated San Marino Unified School District Superintendent Dr. Alex Cherniss.
This is why the focus for San Marino schools is on expanding and supplementing programs for the students, he said during the first Huntington Middle School PTA meeting on Tuesday, Aug. 25.
Well-rounded students are what colleges are looking for, Cherniss emphasized.
All schools have expanded computer science courses this year to include coding classes. There are additional classes being offered in conjunction with The Huntington this year too.
They are also studying ways to add a period to the schedule, which would allow students to take a foreign language and an elective, he said. Each of the periods would be shorter to accommodate for the same time frame.
