NHS Scheduling


Here you will find all of the necessary resources to support the NHS Scheduling Process.  The NHS School Counselors will begin meeting with students in grades 9-11 to discuss their course requests on February 3, 2020.  

The NHS and JHWMS Counselors will be meeting with the current 8th grade students on February 11, 2020 to discuss course requests. 

Please bring completed forms with you to your appointment with your counselor.  Use the Program of Studies and the Course Description Sheets below to learn more about the courses offered at NHS. *The order in which students see their counselor does not impact scheduling, every student has equal access to request courses.

AP (Advanced Placement) Courses: 

If you are interested in taking an AP course in 20-21, you must complete the AP Form by obtaining signatures from a parent/guardian, current teacher for that subject, and the teacher of the AP course, listed on the front of the form.  The deadline is March 13, 2020.

However, it is advised that you do not wait until the deadline. PLEASE HAVE YOUR AP FORMS COMPLETED BEFORE MEETING WITH YOUR COUNSELOR. If there are any AP courses that you want to request as a "back-up" due to possible schedule conflicts, you must also complete an AP form.
