Course Selection Guide

  • Click here to go to the Course Selection Guide. This website provides information about graduation requirements, the courses available at HERH, as well as individual course descriptions.


Course Selection Presentations

Course selection presentations happened in classes prior to March Break. These presentations reviewed the courses being offered at HERH for 2022-2023. They also looked at graduation requirements and selecting courses according to student interests and post secondary plans. Links to these classroom presentations as well as a link to the course selection website can be found below. Students are advised review the course selection website carefully so as to be able to make informed choices for their academic future. It is critical that all selections made by students accurately reflect graduation requirements, personal interests and needs. Knowledgeable and responsible choices by students will help to assure that your school year will be successful.

        It is very important that students carefully consider their course selections as course selections made in the spring for the next academic year are generally considered final.  Course changes will not be made unless:

        1. The scheduling process has resulted in an incomplete schedule.
        2. A course and its prerequisite are in reverse order on a student's schedule.
        3. A course is scheduled for which a credit has already been granted.
        4. A student did not pass a required course and must retake it.
        5. Student request was not granted due to a conflict with other courses.
        6. A potential graduate lacks a required course to complete graduation requirements.
        7. A student is scheduled in a course without the recommended prerequisite course.
        8. A potential graduate is able to complete graduation requirements in a single semester.
        9. Student's post-secondary plans have changed.

        Course changes in September will not start until the third day of classes.  Please ensure you select your courses carefully to limit the need for course changes.
