Elective Choices

It is our hope that students receive all of their elective requests. While we are not always able to honor all 4 requests it is our goal to honor 2 out of the 4. Additionally, courses are subject to change. The quantity of sign-ups, determines whether a class will be offered for the 2018-2019 academic school year. Most elective classes must reach 28 sign-ups to be offered. Please review the list of electives below and come to class prepared with your 4 top choices and your 4 alternate choices.
