A GUIDE TO COURSE SELECTION AND PROGRAM PLANNING

Hamilton Heights High School is a comprehensive high school with a curriculum designed to allow students to complete requirements for graduation as prescribed by the Indiana Department of Education. This academic guide has been developed to assist students and parents in preparing a program to meet the individual academic needs and interests of our students.

The selection and scheduling of classes are vital processes that require thoughtful planning. Students must select courses that are relevant and consistent with their future plans. We suggest that you evaluate and discuss courses before making a final decision. In addition, we encourage you to consult with your guidance counselor and teachers about college and career planning.
Elective and summer school course offerings listed in this guide are proposed offerings. Courses will be taught based upon student enrollment and interest. We must work together in designing an appropriate program for a successful high school career.
