Course Selection Guidelines 

  • Discuss as a Family: Please discuss class choices as a family and make sure you and your student are in agreement with the courses selected for the next school year.  

  • Discuss with Teachers: We also encourage your student to discuss course selection with his/her current core class teacher if they have questions regarding placement.  

  • Select Carefully: Choose ALL classes with care, keeping in mind balance. 

    • Every class = 30 min/1 hour of homework

    • Every H/AP course = 1.5/2 hours of homework per night!

  • Schedule Changes: Keep in mind that schedule changes will only be made for the following reasons: academic misplacement; challenge by choice; add a course needed for graduation; drop a course when pre-reqs have not been met; add/change partial absences; empty blocks in schedules.
