AKS
Academic Knowledge and Skills

The AKS for Business and Computer Science, formerly known as just Computer Science, are new this school year.  They have been adapted from the Georgia Performance Standards to fit the needs of our high achieving technology plus adding in business concepts.

I work in close conjunction with the Business and Computer Science high school teachers at NGHS to ensure that our classes are aligned.  The skills in my class are transferrable to such classes as Computer Applications, Marketing and Web Design and Multimedia.
