2024-25 Course Selection

The portal for making course requests in PowerSchool for the 2024-25 school year is open. Students have until Dec. 15 to choose the next year's courses. After that point, the portal closes, but changes can be made through the Guidance office without a fee through March 1. After March 1, there is a $50 fee for course request changes. (This fee does not apply if the change is initiated by a teacher.)
Mrs. Uher is in process of meeting with students in classrooms to discuss course selection options, and how they relate to post graduation plans. If you have any questions, please contact her.

See the Curriculum page for the current list of course offerings.

Xello (pronounced “Zello”) is an online program that helps anyone, anywhere in the world create a successful future through self-knowledge, exploration, and planning. Xello is used in Computer Essentials class by all Freshmen. In addition, all students will complete Xello activities according to their grade level throughout this year under the guidance of their homeroom teachers.
