WJHS Online Course Bulletin
Dear Student and Parents:
Each year, as you plan your schedule for the
following year, you are engaging in a very important activity in your ongoing
education. I hope as you consider
courses that you will also consider challenging yourself with a variety of
classes that include honors and/or Advanced Placement (AP®)
courses. Walter Johnson High School
(WJHS) has an excellent reputation with colleges and universities. They are aware that our school has a wide
variety of honors and AP® classes to offer students and expect to
see some of these classes on your transcript.
If you are considering taking a more challenging course load for next
year, but feel a bit nervous, please be assured that your teachers are
experienced and they want you to be successful.
As you plan for next year, be sure to meet with
your counselor and talk to teachers about the different classes you are
considering. They can help you determine
the appropriate course workload and find balance in your schedule. Remember, as you strive to take interesting
courses in a variety of subjects, that WJHS has strong music, theater, computer
science and art programs. We also offer
a large number of upper level electives in all departments. Explore these
options and ask lots of questions to help you make the decisions that are right
for you and your future plans. Also, you
might think about undertaking a Senior Research Project where you can design an
independent learning experience around one of your specific interests.
Good luck with planning a challenging and
engaging set of courses. I know you will
have a fantastic 2018 – 2019 school year.
