Elective Sign-ups

6th grade students going into 7th grade can discuss their elective choices when they meet with their counselor in the Spring of 6th grade. Before the start of school in the Fall, students (other than those in the Modern Media and Communications Magnet) can submit their 1st, 2nd, and 3rd elective choices for 7th grade using the Elective Preference Form on the Electives page.

7th grade students going into 8th grade can do the same for their 8th grade electives.

The counselors try to accommodate each student's preferences, although not everyone can have their first choice.
