Choose your classes carefully! Classes in high school are year-long and the decisions you make when you register this spring will affect you all of next year! Avoid choosing classes because your friends are taking them, or because you want something “easy.” A high school career should lead to some very specific outcomes. Whether you wish to attend a university, college, vocational/technical school, or want to move directly into the job market, each class you take should move you closer to your overall goal. The purpose of this handbook is to allow you to make these choices in an informed manner. You should discuss your choices with your parents and also your counselor! The information in the Program Planning Guide should be reviewed carefully as you plan your program for next year and consider how that program will fit into your overall four-year plan at Mt. Whitney High School. In selecting your classes for next year, please note the grade level of the course as well as any prerequisites that are needed. Also, note the description of the course to get a sense of what the course is all about.
