Wolverine Class of 2026!

You will find that we are different from traditional high schools, starting with our 4 x 4 block schedule. Students may choose to complete between 6-8 courses per year. The number of courses a student chooses is divided between two terms/semesters. If a student chooses to take six courses, they will have three classes and one period "Off Roll" each term/semester, which allows them extra study time while participating in sports, music, and other extra-curricular activities. However, many students choose to take seven or eight classes per year and earn extra credits towards graduation and/or college admission requirements. The flexibility of the 4 x 4 schedule allows the student and parent to choose the appropriate number of classes for each term in high school.

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.
