Congratulations to our STEM classes and the Stanley FatMax Robotics team!

This past Saturday, at William Jessup University, our students discussed their learning and their experiences in our STEM courses.  Stanley FatMax also demonstrated their robot to all of the visitors! The Cavitt students were AMAZING ambassadors for our school.  Mrs. Davis, Mr. Pozzi and I were very honored that these students joined us on a Saturday at the Placer County STEM Expo! Mrs. Davis and Mr. Pozzi will be discussing our STEM courses at our STEM OPEN HOUSE, at 6:30pm, which occurs before our General Open House on May 8th at 7:00pm!

Cavitt JHS’s Academic Performance Index is 932*!


This is a 20 point increase from our API growth score last year! Cavitt JHS students continued to thrive last year – even though students throughout the state showed declining scores. We are very proud of our shared focus on meeting the needs of our diverse learners!  Our growth since the API base 2002 score is111 points!! 


We extend our congratulations to our students who have again proven their motivation to create successful futures for themselves! Congratulations should also be extended to our teachers and support staff as they implemented a new intervention period in 2012-2013, C-Period, as well as donated their lunchtimes to tutor students, supervise intramural sports and participate in extra-curricular spirit activities outside of their required instructional duties. 


Cavitt JHS is more than just a place of rigorous academic learning; it is a place for students to grow as well-rounded young people, towards their bright futures.  Again, congratulations to our students, families, faculty, support staff and community! Go Cowboys!
