The James Monroe High School Course of Studies contains descriptions of all of our high school courses, programs, and requirements for the 2011-2012 school year.
Graduation requirements including an explanation of the necessary verified credits are included in this document. It remains extremely important for all students, parents, and guardians to maintain close contact with not only our school counselors, but also the classroom teachers concerning progress towards graduation.
We have many resources and people available to assist students, parents, and guardians in making the best informed decisions about class schedules, course selections, college, and career choices. Please choose courses carefully and with a great deal of commitment.
Excellent school attendance is a key component of student and school success. As we continue to meet the No Child Left Behind mandates, it becomes much more important that the partnership among the student, the parent and/or guardian, and the classroom teacher remain in constant communication. Please continue to establish your individualized communication model with the staff and administration of James Monroe High School.
I encourage every student to select the most appropriate, challenging courses available that meet your abilities and goals, and I wish everyone the greatest success in all of your endeavors.
