High School Schedule

All students are encouraged to take any available biotechnology, higher-level mathematics, and higher-level science courses, beginning in middle school. In addition, coursework in business, computers, and communication are valuable in developing necessary career skills. Students pursuing a College Tech Prep course of study need four related Career-Technical Education (CTE) credits; ask your counselor for your school's guidelines. Science course sequences may vary by school.
