PHS COURSE SELECTION

  • Each year, teachers conference with students to make course recommendations in February.  Students in grades 8-11 meet with their guidance counselor in seminars to select courses for the following school year in March. 

    Student course lists are distributed at the end of the school year. The list indicates the names of the courses each student is scheduled to take the following school year. It will not include the teacher's name or period number.  Students and families are strongly encouraged to review this list prior to departing for the school year and contact their guidance counselor if there are any issues.  Guidance counselors will be available five days after the end of the school year and will have open office hours from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. from June 23 to June 29.  Students and parents are also encouraged to view the handbook to fully understand the challenges with changing classes in the fall and the process used to do so.  That is why it is so important to meet in the spring prior to the summer.  

    A Program of Studies Night took place in the PHS Auditorium on March 2nd at 6:30 PM. If you were unable to attend, the Program of Studies Presentation is available to view below.  This is a great way to learn about graduation requirements, course sequences and course elective options. A full list of course election options and the Program of Studies is also available to download below. It is important for students to read the course descriptions in the Program of Studies prior to selecting courses.
