    Colleges do not care which Endorsement you have. We encourage students to take elective courses that interest them. High School is a great time to shop around to see what interests you.

  • Why do I have to choose alternate electives?

    Posted by:

    Some courses do not make due to lack of interest - others have too many students sign up for them then we have staff for. Lastly, sometimes your schedule will not work with the elective and core combinations so we have to schedule your alternates. Please choose electives that you are interested in.

  • Should I take Pre-AP/AP classes?

    Posted by:

    This is a very individual decision, and there are many factors to take into consideration: areas of strengths, previous grades, other commitments, teacher recommendations, etc. Your current teacher knows your skill set the best. They will be the best judge of your academic readiness. Taking all Pre-AP in all areas is very challenging and time consuming, especially for those who have extracurricular commitments. We encourage you to balance your life and your school load. Students who decide to take Pre-AP/AP classes are required to complete the entire first 6 weeks of the class before a move to an on- level would be considered.

    Yes*, however, you must make the team in order to stay in the class. Most cuts are typically made during the first few weeks of school. Those not making the team will be moved to a P.E. class. *You must have approval from the Coach in order to sign up for the sport. Please contact them – their emails are provided on a separate list. Once the Counselor gets approval from the Coach, they will change your schedule.
