Academic Resources for High School

Our teachers have compiled the resources below by level as well as by subject area to provide you with specific academic resources while school is closed.

However, before you begin exploring these activities, you should begin by reading a book for 30 minutes a day. Yale researchers found that reading 30 minutes a day not only helps your brain, but you may live longer as well.

In addition to these specific areas and resources, you can also find additional enrichment opportunities here:

  • ClassLink – a single sign-on database that gives students access to an array of educational apps specific to their educational level. You will find more information on using ClassLink here:
  • ClassLink LOGIN:
  • Please go to www.mw.k12.ny.us and click the “Student Resources” link in the “Quick Links” list on the right. On the Student Resources page, click the Classlink logo.
  • Students can login using this formula:
    User Name is Last Name, First Initial and last 3 numbers of their Student ID
    (Jane Doe, Student ID 12345 would be doej345)

Password is your student’s full Student ID.
(Jane Doe’s password would be 12345)

  • K-1 and students new to Monroe-Woodbury this year, use password: Mw#student ID (Mw#12345)

Once your student has logged in, they can access the apps and websites they use in school by clicking on the appropriate logo. This resource will remind them of their logins:
