Genius Bar Peer Tutoring Sign Ups

MSD’s Genius Bar (Peer Tutoring Program)

Stoneman Douglas High School is relaunching its Genius Bar program to help students struggling in Algebra 1, Geometry, Biology and US History. The Genius Bar is a free peer tutoring program that matches struggling students with hand-selected peer tutors. Students commit to meet with their peer tutors at least once a week in the media center during their study hall period. Students stay with the same peer matches the entire school year. This opportunity is available to all students, however, students who sign up to be a part of the Genius Bar program must understand that they are committing to a minimum of one study hall period a week to meet with their tutors for the rest of the school year. Any student who fails to meet with their peer tutor for more than two scheduled tutoring sessions will be removed from the program.

This is an extremely valuable opportunity that has helped many struggling students succeed in their EOC courses. If your child is interested in being a part of this program, please have them fill out the following survey by Friday, February 11, 2022:
