Mmc world language requirement the class of 2017

MMC WORLD LANGUAGE REQUIREMENT: THE CLASS OF 2017

  • Two consecutive years of the same world language is required for the incoming freshmen.

  • Colleges such as the University of Michigan Ann Arbor like to see two or MORE years of world language in grades 9-12 on the high school transcript.

  • Parents and students should check with colleges they are interested in for more specific requirements, or talk to your counselor.


Pe and health

PE AND HEALTH

  • In the past, Physical Education and Health have been strongly recommended for the freshman schedule.

  • With the new language requirement, some students may opt to delay PE and Health to a later year in high school if they need to.

  • Students are encouraged to sign up for summer school if they would like to get some requirements out of the way in order to fit other classes in later, such as Advanced Placement courses.


High school plan educational development plan edp

HIGH SCHOOL PLAN/EDUCATIONAL DEVELOPMENT PLAN (EDP)

  • This chart is located on page 81 of the COURSE CATALOG. We encourage parents and students to complete this. Planning out all four years of high school early will provide a roadmap or blue print for a student to follow. Students also can access the plan they have been working on in Career Cruising.

  • This will enable students to plan for elective courses based on their career pathways.

  • It helps students plan for the selection of Advanced Placement courses.

  • Planning ahead will help ensure that all of the MMC requirements are met.
