While students can obtain all the necessary credits for graduation during the normal course of their high school careers, many students want the opportunity to take more electives such as four years of performing and visual arts, Project Lead the Way classes, four years of a foreign language, etc. With all of the necessary graduation requirements, participating in these extra electives can be difficult. However, there are several options that you and your child can explore as you plan for your child’s next school year.
COURSE CATALOG: Please look over and discuss this material with your child. Help prepare your student in choosing the classes you both feel he or she should request for next year.
