All students must choose 7 courses or courses equaling 7.0 credits and 3 alternate courses for next school year.  All students must enter their course requests online by January 16th. 

Please note the importance of the 3 alternate courses.  Students are able to request any course that is in the HCPSS course catalog. Course offerings depend solely on student interest and qualified staff able to teach the courses. We have provided students with a list of courses we feel GPHS students may like based on last year's recommendations. However, the course catalog is available online to all students. We want to make sure that you have serious alternates in case one of your main selections does not run next school year or in case of limited spacing. Please list your 3 alternates in priority order and do not duplicate any of your requests.  

We encourage all families to talk with their students about their course requests and to choose the classes together. Choose classes that will support your career and after graduation goals.

We always encourage students to challenge themselves with Honors, GT, and AP courses where appropriate.  However, students should be aware that any AP level class is a college-level course, and very rigorous.  Students need to make deliberate decisions about how many GT/AP classes to take each year, as well as how much work they can handle.  Students should strive to create balance in order to reduce stress, while still choosing an academically rigorous schedule.

If you have concerns or disagree with any of the course recommendations, please contact your child’s teacher.  If you are still not satisfied with the recommendation, parents/guardians may complete the Course Placement Review Form online through their HCPSS Connect account.  Please follow the instructions to assist you with completing this form.

Counselors will meet with every student individually between January 24th and February 15th to discuss their selections for the 2024-2025 school year.  Please contact your student’s counselor should you have additional questions about course selection.
