Course Selection Info

We have resumed our one-on-one meetings with students to guide them in Course Selection for next year- View Schedule here. Please be sure to bring your transcript and student course selection packet with you! Remember: Course Selection is NOT a first come first served event - everyone has equal access to classes until the window closes on 3/30.

When students enter their 15 courses for next year it becomes our blueprint for building the master schedule, what classes we will offer, how many teachers we need etc. That is why we allow you ample time to make your selections and ask you to select alternates. If enough students don't sign up for a particular course we do not run the class, and would like to know your second choice rather than guessing at your replacement class (in the event that we are forced to do this). Entering your 15 courses does not "create" your schedule. In fact, we undergo a huge process from April-June to build a school-wide schedule that involves many staff members. Schedules will not be generated or visible until school starts in August
