Finals for ALL LEARNERS both IN PERSON and REMOTE, will occur synchronously.

For example, if a sophomore student has English II in their schedule during 2nd period, their English exam will be on May 24, 2021, from 9:24 a.m. - 11:20 a.m. according to the schedule above. If your student is unable to take the exam at the scheduled time, they will need to schedule a make-up exam with their teacher. No exams for students will be given prior to May 21, 2021. Any student, REMOTE or IN PERSON who misses the scheduled exam at the scheduled time, will be allowed a make-up exam without penalty. A zero will be entered into the gradebook but will be replaced with the exam grade once the exam has been made up. If the student does not arrange to make-up the exam, then the zero will remain in the gradebook.

Please review the schedule above and plan accordingly. If you have questions or concerns, please reach out to your child's teacher or counselor.



All students, 9th through 12th, are eligible for final exam exemptions in the Spring Semester. Students must meet the criteria and the discipline requirement listed below.

  1. Students must maintain an 85-100 class average for the semester (18-weeks)

  2. Any student that has served ISS/SAC, DAEP, or OSS while enrolled in a course during the semester of the final exam is not eligible for a final exam exemption for that course.

  3. A student granted a final exam exemption must still attend that class during the final exam period in person or virtually. Students checking in remotely must log on during the synchronous exam time and submit the exemption assignment posted in the Canvas course for that class. If a student that does not attend in person does not complete the online exemption activity during the synchronous time, they will receive a zero (0) for the final exam and then must schedule a time to make up the exam.
  4. To ensure that all students have the opportunity to complete their exams in a distraction-free environment, the attendance office will not be doing early checkouts for students on campus during exam periods. Parents and students should plan accordingly so that students remain in their exam period the entire duration of the exam period if coming in person (both mid-term and final exams).


AP TESTING: All AP exams administered at The Woodlands High School will be given during the 1st Administration and In Person. Only students with a qualifying COVID reason (Quarantined, Isolated, Covid Medical Exemption on file prior to April 23, 2021) will be considered for testing after May 17, 2021. Students should plan to arrive by 7:30am for a morning exam, 11:30am for a noon exam and 1:30pm for a 2pm exam. Please be sure to check emails from school messenger, as well as follow The Woodlands HS on Facebook and Instagram for updated information as we get closer to testing.

2021 Seniors will enter information and submit documentation for Senior Awards in the following Google forms. The form can be completed more than once if you receive notification of more awards in the future.

This information is due by May 3, 2021 in order to be printed in the Senior Awards Program.

Categories and Forms:

Any student who has received a scholarship or grant at the school that they are planning to attend: This can be academic, fine or performing arts, leadership/service, merit, ROTC, and athletics. You will have to upload proof of this scholarship. We can only include scholarships that you have accepted (Example: You are offered a scholarship from College X, Y, and Z and then decide to go to Z….we only list the college you accept – College Z!) Form:

Any student who has received a local/national scholarship or booster club scholarship: You do not need to attach proof for booster club scholarships as we have the contacts for these, but you will attach proof for local or national scholarships. Form:

Any student who has taken or is scheduled to take 5 or more AP exams by the time you graduate: REGARDLESS of your scores. For example, if you took 1 test as a sophomore, 2 as a junior, and you are scheduled to take 2 or more as a senior, that would be a total of 5. Again, no specific scores are needed. Form:

Any student joining the military/ROTC or attending a military academy: You will need to add your contact liaison’s information or letter of acceptance to program/academy. Form:

If you have any questions, please contact your child’s counselor. The final day to turn in the GPA Exempt application form is Thursday, May 20, 2021. Reminder: Once this course is put in place and the student starts the course in the fall, the decision cannot be reversed.

Link for GPA Exempt Courses:

Note: If your student wants to wait and see their final grades this semester, there will be another opportunity to enroll for GPA exemptions in the fall semester. Fall GPA Exempt forms will be accepted through the third week of school. The fall deadline is September 3, 2021. Reminder: Once this course is put in place and the student starts the course in the fall semester, the decision cannot be reversed.

Course Selections for 2021-2022: Counselors have been working diligently for the past several weeks on individual conferences for all current 9th, 10th and 11th grade students. Both campuses should be completed with all of their conferences. In addition, the final deadline for parents and students to make changes to their course selections for next year is Friday April 30, 2021.

Summer School Registration: Summer school registration is underway on our campus. If your student is interested in taking an accelerated course such as health, government, etc., please reach out to your student’s counselor. In addition, if your student needs summer school for credit recovery, counselors have also started that process. Counselors do understand, however, that many parents and students wait until after final exams to register for credit recovery. The final registration deadline for on campus registration is Wednesday, June 2nd.

Summer school will be at The Woodlands High School this summer. The link for the brochure is:

Quick Reminder: If your child is able to average the first semester failing grade with the second semester passing grade together for an overall grade of 70 or higher, summer school may not be needed. However, if a student fails second semester, the two semester averages cannot be averaged together for credit recovery. All students have to pass the second semester in order to get second semester credit.


If a copy of your student’s vaccine record is needed to submit to their college or university, you or your student may request it by calling or emailing the clinic at 936-709-1076 or Please be aware that we will not be available after May 27th. If your student has not had an additional dose of the MCV4 (meningitis) vaccine after their 16th birthday, it is required by most colleges and universities for them to be fully vaccinated. You may want to also discuss whether the additional Meningitis B vaccine is appropriate for your child.

If your student has been vaccinated against COVID, please send us a copy or screenshot of that vaccination record via email (Senior Campus -, 9th Grade Campus -, or ask your student to stop by the clinic and we can make a copy, so we can add it to their record. Currently, individuals who have been fully vaccinated do not need to quarantine after an exposure, if they remain symptom-free, you are able to submit proof, and it has been longer than two weeks since their final dose.

From Nurse Jan at TWHS 9th grade campus - If your student calls you and wants to go home, please tell them to come see me first, and we will call you. Some things are OK to go home for, but if it is a Covid symptom I have to have some information before they leave.

GIRLS GOLF: The Girls Golf Team won the Region 2 - 6A Championship at Bear Ridge GC in Waco TX.

The Team Score of 622 was 16 strokes clear of 2nd place Mansfield and 38 clear of 3rd place College Park.

  • The Regional Champions were led by Avery Blake (Sr). Avery fired scores of 74-74 and her 148, 4 over par total was 2nd place individually for the championship.
  • Senior Valeria Cruz added some timely play to the team's championship effort, her last 9 holes each day show there is no quit in these Highlanders.
  • Freshman, Veronika Exposito played solid golf both rounds and added a pair of 79's to the team's regional championship.
  • Sophomores Sofia Bastidas and Leena Stephens stepped up and showed a lot of grit and determination to hold to wrap up the teams championship effort.

Having a freshman and 2 sophmores contribute in such meaningful ways to a team's championship run means several more years of stellar play from the Highlander Girls Golf team at the Regional and State level.

  • Holly Paterson (senior) also played in the Regional Championship as a medalist qualifier. Including Holly, all the highlanders place in the top 15 at the tournament and represented The Woodlands HS to the standards that have been in place for years!

Congratulations to the Regional champions! The State championship will be played on May 10-11 at Legacy Hills GC in Georgetown TX.
