This Course Planning Handbook is designed to help you plan your high school program of study. Graduation requirements are outlined, level placement is addressed, and related policies are explained. Descriptions are provided of the nearly two hundred courses offered at our school with specific prerequisites listed so you know whether or not you qualify to take a given course. The Handbook also contains information about the many special programs available to our high school students.
Course planning decisions need to involve the student, teachers, counselor, and parents. Future goals and personal objectives and interests must always be kept in mind. The faculty and counselors will recommend specific courses for individuals depending upon assessed academic potential and past achievement records. During the registration process multiple opportunities exist for students and parents to gather information. You are strongly urged to get the information needed to be ready to select future courses in February. Requests to change course choices after that time are strongly discouraged and sometimes not possible.
