Course Levels  Honors and Pre-Advanced Placement Course content is rapidly paced with additional depth. Lessons are often designed to be complex, abstract, and open-ended.

Reminders   A rising freshman course selection worksheet is online!  The 2017-2018 Program of Studies is online!

The middle school counselors and teachers are a great resource when making these decisions.

“Lesson in Balance”   Challenge the student vs. Overloading the student  Finding balance in the students course load  If you figure out the formula for this, create an app! You’ll make millions!

“Lesson in Balance”  Take the most challenging classes you can handle.

“Lesson in Balance”  Take the most challenging classes you can reasonably handle.

“Lesson in Balance”   How much time do you have available to study and do homework?  Do you play sports?  Are you involved in activities?

 What does your track-record indicate?

 How committed and disciplined are you?

“Lesson in Balance”  Think long-term: It’s easier to improve your schedule each year by taking more challenging classes… than it is to improve a damaged GPA!

“Lesson in Balance”  Don’t forget to consider the student’s interests when determining his/her course load!

After the School Year Begins 

 Per County Policy

 Schedule revisions will ONLY be considered for the following reasons:  If a student passed a course which he assumed he would fail; or  If a student failed a course required for graduation.

 Academic level changes

 Level change decisions are made case-by-case  Input from a variety of sources will be needed  A class that is “difficult” for a student is not the same as a class that is “too difficult” for a student!  Changing a level often disrupts the student’s entire schedule!  Move up, not down
