Course Selection Lesson
The following information was presented to students during Advisor on March 4, and it may answer your questions about the course selection process.
Advanced Placement and Honors Courses
Advanced Placement and honors courses provide students the opportunity to learn at a deeper level and faster pace. These courses require students to have disciplined study habits and an eager attitude toward learning. The amount of homework in these courses, while not always greater than regular courses, frequently demands extended preparation time beyond the classroom. Student participation in academically challenging courses is voluntary, although some courses require instructor approval for admission.
Career and Technical Education
At CHS, we learn through study and experience. With the Career and Technical Education (CTE) program we provide our students with real-life experiences. Students can gain industrial and applied technology experience- skills like woodworking, welding, automotive mechanics, industrial design, and engineering drafting. Other popular courses include Child Development, Culinary Arts, Digital Arts, and Computer Science.
