Academic Support


Mullen High School strives to meet the academic needs of its diverse student population. Students who meet the criteria through assessment by a licensed professional have access to the accommodations offered at Mullen. Disclosure of your student’s learning difference, including documentation, allows Mullen to assess and support your student.

The disclosure does not impact admissions in any way.
Mullen High School is a college preparatory setting, therefore our support to students focuses on enhancing self-advocacy and academic organization.

We do not modify curricular, co-curricular, or behavioral expectations. For example, we do not shorten assignments, extend due dates, or alter test formats. 

Mullen does not discriminate on the basis of learning and/or other disabilities.
