2021-22 GHS Course Offerings

 

Dear Students, Parents and Guardians:

The 2021-2022 Course Guide is designed to assist you in making course selections that will impact your future. Careful consideration should be given to requirements needed, as well as future goals and plans after high school. As you use this guide, please check the required courses needed for graduation. Consider your strengths and weaknesses. What courses will help you enhance your strengths?  Which courses will strengthen growth areas?  

Think about your credentials. Employers want workers that have good attendance, a good attitude, and can demonstrate that they can get good grades in high school. However, we are focused more intently than ever upon building skills, rather than mastering content.  The workforce of the 21st Century will mandate that students are able to learn, relearn, solve problems, think critically, communicate effectively, and collaborate with many different types of people in the global community. To think that you will be trained exclusively for one job and one job only is naïve. The average adult changes careers at least seven times throughout their working life. Professionals are asked to adapt to new skills, new ways of communicating, and new responsibilities every day.    

Students will be working with their counselors in an ongoing process to use the “My Academic Planner Tool” in Infinite Campus to develop and modify their High School course of study. Use this as you consider the courses you not only need to take, but what you want to take. If you have any questions about the process, please call the high school office at 236-2720 or the high school counseling office at 236-2677.

We wish you much success in the years ahead!
