Planning for High School and Beyond
“Begin with the end in mind.”
These wise words from author Stephen Covey are certainly applicable to students entering high school. Beginning high school can be both exciting and intimidating: exciting because there are so many opportunities to learn and activities to explore, and intimidating because there are so many opportunities to learn and activities to explore!
High school course offerings allow for both exploration (Do I prefer ceramics or digital photography?) and focus (I want to take all the computer science courses!). And now, the trimester schedule allows for additional exploration and focus opportunities. So choices, and the pathways through them, are more varied than ever.
We want students and parents to use these planning resources as a way to inform these choices.
Think about these resources not only as a guide for choosing classes during high school, but also as support to pursue education and career opportunities after high school.
