The time for students to begin the scheduling process has officially begun. From core classes to electives, the sophomores and juniors have been tasked with choosing what classes they will be taking next year.

“I’ve based my schedule for next year based off of classes I’ve taken in previous years and how well I did in the class,” junior Megan Walker said. “I decided which of my classes would truly help me with the career path I have chosen for myself at this point.”

When choosing their classes, students have the option to go the AP route. These courses move at a much more rigorous pace of learning than the regular classes. With taking an AP class, students will have the option to take an end of course exam to receive possible college credit.

“I wasn’t sure if I wanted to take AP English Language next year, but after I talked to some students that are currently taking that class, I felt like it was a good choice for me to challenge myself by taking the class,” sophomore Olivia Hayes said.

For those who felt conflicted about whether or not to take the AP class, an AP fair was held on Wednesday Mar. 6 in the media center during all lunch periods. Students were able to speak to students who are currently in those classes as well as ask questions about the class.

“It gives you a chance to learn about AP classes that you might like to take and see if you’re interested,” sophomore Kariana Odister said.

In addition to the AP fair, there was also an elective fair on Thursday Mar. 7 for students to learn about the different elective classes that are offered.

Something new this year for juniors was curriculum night on Monday Mar. 18 from 7:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. in the auditorium. In previous years, curriculum night was only offered to incoming sophomores. This year however, all students were welcome to attend. Curriculum night allowed both the students and their parents the chance to learn more about what classes are offered.

In addition to academic courses, curriculum night also includes representatives for many of the extracurricular activities and clubs that are offered.
