Making sense of high school course selection!
It is the time of year when we start planning for the next academic year. You may hear your grade nine student coming home and talking about 'choosing courses' for Senior High. Students will receive a survey in the coming weeks on which they indicate their preferred courses. Teachers also complete a survey to indicate the course they believe to be the best fit for each students in their professional opinion.
As we move toward Spring (yes, it will eventually come!), there will be an Open House event for students transitioning from Grade 9 to Grade 10. Please note that this will be the same night as the Open House of those students transition into our school at Grade 4 and those moving into Junior High. We will post a date for this event as soon as it is available.
In addition to the Open House, parents and students will have an opportunity to meet with our Guidance Counsellor, Mrs. Goodspeed, to talk about course selection and career planning.
Please check out this short document to familiarize yourself with senior high 'streams' and course options. We are always happy to answer any questions you may have.
