What is my schedule?


In the spring incoming Freshman from feeder middle schools (West End & JT Moore), were able to register from site visits by Hillsboro counselors. If you were not apart of this pre-registry, choose the assignment that fits what level of English class you took in 8th grade.


In the spring, your registration with counselors at Hillsboro routed you in the direction of classes that you were planning on taking. If you are new to Hillsboro, choose the level that matches what coursework you took your Freshman year. If you are planning to pursue the IB DP diploma or CP diploma your Junior & Senior year, choose the assignment that matches Pre-IB.

For any clarification on your schedule contact Dr. Reese for assistance.
