Course Requests: 2017-2018

It is time to start thinking about classes for the 2017-2018 school year!  To prepare for this process, students are asked to review The Anchor, talk with their teachers about suggested courses, and start to think about courses that relate to their interests and college/career plans.

8th8th graders (Class of 2021)  JFK Counselors will visit middle schools in March to discuss course selection.  If you attend a school other than Henry World School, Kepner Middle School, or Grant Ranch K-8, please contact Patricia Martinez, Counseling Support, to make arrangements to complete the Course Request form.  This will not be available until mid-February. Please read The Anchor for more information on classes offered at JFK. 

9th9th graders (Class of 2020) will receive a copy of the Choice of Studies worksheet during a presentation from the Counselors in Academic Success/Anchor Down classes.  9th graders should research their options and get a parent signature on their request form, plus teacher signatures for any Honors courses.  Counselors will then meet individually with each 9th grader to review and enter their course requests into IC.  To prepare for this meeting, students are asked to review The Anchor, talk with their teachers about suggested courses, and come prepared with ideas and questions for their counselor.

10th10th graders (Class of 2019) will receive their Choice of Studies worksheet during a presentation from the Counselors in English 2 classes.  10th graders should research their options and get a parent signature on their form, plus teacher signatures for any Honors or AP/IB courses.  Counselors will then meet individually with each 10th grader to review and enter their course request into IC.  To prepare for this meeting, students are asked to review The Anchor, talk with their teachers about suggested courses, and come prepared with ideas and questions for their counselor.

11th11th graders (Class of 2018) will request classes during a 20-30 minute 1-on-1 meeting with their counselor.  Students will be notified of their individual meeting date and time via pass.  To prepare for this meeting, students are asked to review The Anchor, talk with their teachers about suggested courses, and come prepared with ideas and questions for their counselor.

Students who do not request classes through this process will be assigned classes by their counselor.

All students are encouraged to research course options and descriptions by reading The Anchor.
