Course selection 2010 2011

Things to consider or not to do…

  • DON’T take a class because you “like who teaches it.”

  • Remember that staffing changes from year to year.

  • DON’T sign up for classes just because a friend is

    signing up for that course. Most courses have

    multiple sections and you cannot pick the section

    you are taking.

  • DO remember this is high school and EVERY grade

    you earn can make an impact on your future plans.
