What grade are you entering into?
I will be a 9th grader.
I will be a 10th grader.
ENGLISH Course Selection
Regular English I, Freshman Level, STAAR tested subject
Regular English II, Sophomore Level, STAAR testing subject
Most students are required to take 4.0 credits of math. Algebra I, Geometry, and Algebra II are required and Algebra I is a prerequisite for all other math classes. Students should consider which option is best for them. On the Recommended graduation plan, once a student completes Algebra II, they cannot go back and take Math Models. Pre-Calculus would be required for the 4th year math in that situation. This does not apply to students graduating on the Foundation Graduation Plan. The Pre-Calculus sequence is considered more difficult. Students should also consider what the entrance requirements are for the colleges of their choice, some colleges require Pre-Calculus. If you passed HS Algebra in the eighth grade, you will take Geometry if your a freshman.
MATH Course Selection
Algebra I, STAAR tested subject
Most students are required to take 4.0 credits of science. Biology and a lab science are both required for graduation.
Incoming Freshman who passed their 8th grade Science STAAR will take Biology. Incoming Freshman who failed their 8th grade Science STAAR will take IPC (Integrated Physics and Chemistry) their Freshman year and Biology their Sophomore year. For the Recommended plan, Biology, Chemistry and Physics are required. For the Foundation plan, Biology and a lab science are required. For the STEM endorsement, Biology, Chemistry and Physics are required. For the Multidisciplinary Studies endorsement Biology is required and Chemistry or Physics.
Science Course Selection
