Course Descriptions & Scheduling

In an effort to have each student plan their coursework for the following year, all students receive the Course Request sheet appropriate to their grade level (see below) in December or January during scheduling meetings with the DHS counselors. After the students choose their courses, they have until the first week following winter break to enter those course requests into PowerSchool. Any student who misses the deadline will have their courses entered into PowerSchool by their high school counselor. These courses will be up to the discretion of the counselor.

To see which courses are offered for next year, for each grade level, please view the appropriate attachments below. Please note that it is possible that some courses on the lists below may not actually be available due to lack of requests or Master Schedule conflicts.

Schedule Changes

Schedule Changes

Students are advised/encouraged each school year to make careful choices in requesting courses (and alternate courses) for the next year, as there are only a few conditions allowing schedule changes in the fall.

Therefore, we will only be making changes to student schedules if the following conditions exist:

  1. You have an empty slot in your schedule.
  2. You are missing a core course for your grade level
