Current 10th Graders - Poway to Palomar Middle College

PUSD has some exciting news for the class of 2024! In August of 2022, PUSD in collaboration with Palomar Community College will be opening Poway to Palomar Middle College High School (PPMC). PPMC will be located on the Rancho Bernardo Palomar College campus and is now accepting applications from the class of 2024. PPMC’s mission is to provide students a world class learning environment to experience both high school and college classes leading to career and life readiness. Students will have the opportunity to take high school and college classes as well as participate in internships throughout the school year.

Students with GPAs of 2.0-2.9 will make up approximately 80% of the inaugural student body. The other 20% of the students will be those with GPA’s equal to or above 3.0. Our goal is to enroll 80-100 students. Small class sizes, personalized support, and relevant curriculum is the backbone to the success of middle college students.

Applications will be accepted from February 28-March 21. We will be hosting a Parent Information Night via Zoom; stay tuned for more information.

Repeating a D or F grade

4-year colleges and universities do not accept grades of D or F. In most cases, you will need to repeat any A-G class in which you earned a grade of D or F. Please see your Counselor to discuss your options for repeating a class.

What exactly is a College Prep Elective?

In the A-G requirements, category G is listed as a College Prep Elective. At Westview we offer several courses that meet the G category, such as Psychology or Sociology; however, there is another way to meet this requirement. You may use a course that exceeds the minimum amount of coursework in a certain subject area from the A-F categories. For example, if 3 years of math are required, a 4th year of math can count as a College Prep Elective. Refer to the course catalog to find what A-G category a course falls under and if it can meet the G category as well.

Taking a class outside of Westview?

A limited number of outside courses are approved for credit through PUSD. Approval forms must be completed PRIOR to starting the course. Please see our Registrar, Mrs. Carroll for more information.

If you are taking a foreign language course outside of Westview, you will need to complete the Application and Authorization Form for Foreign Language Credit PRIOR to beginning the class.

Thinking of skipping a level of math or taking a summer math course outside PUSD?

Our recommendation is to not skip a level of math. PUSD does not currently have any approved Integrated Math classes through outside schools or programs that will be accepted for credit. If a student takes something over the summer it will not be on their PUSD transcript. More importantly, if a student signs up for the higher level next year and realizes it was not the correct placement, they are not guaranteed a spot in the previous level, as there may not be space available.

Specific to Integrated Math II: Aside from the mathematical instruction and curriculum reasons against skipping Integrated II, there is a college requirement component, as well. The UC system requires that students take a geometry-based math course as part of their 3-year math sequence. They consider Integrated Math II to be this course in the integrated sequence. We have been advising students against skipping Integrated Math II for this reason in particular. We do not want students to find that when they apply for college that they do not meet the UC requirements because they did not take Integrated II. More information can be found on pages 18 - 19 of the UC Counselor Reference Guide.
