SOS (Support Our Students) After-School Program

Ankeny High School’s SOS Program is now available. The purpose of SOS is to provide a faculty-supervised quiet space after school for homework completion, test and quiz make-ups, and tutoring. Students may refer themselves to SOS or be referred by a teacher or parent.

This semester’s SOS is available Monday through Thursday from 3:50 – 4:50 in the Career Center. Students will be required to sign in to verify attendance and to record what they are working on while at SOS.
