The START program at Overfelt has been an essential tool in aiding student success and achievement. two Saturday's a month (usually), students voluntarily come to the library, teacher's classrooms, PE recovery, or other educational functions on campus in order to study, complete make up work, and enrich their learning. The program is run in a way that promotes a college-style working environment, allowing students to work collaboratively with classmates toward the common goal of attaining their UC/CSU a-g requirements. Teachers use this time to administer practice AP tests or make up tests, conduct CAHSEE tutoring, and allow extra credit work.
