STUDENT SCHEDULES
Students may now view their tentative schedules through Infinite Campus.  We are still making changes, so be sure to refresh your screen on the first day of school to see your official schedule. 10th through 12th graders were given an opportunity to discuss errors/necessary changes with counselors on Aug. 11th from 12:30pm-2:30pm.  Students may also visit the counseling office during the first week of school during break/lunch, or during the class period with an error.  Freshmen will have this opportunity on Aug. 12th after Freshman Orientation.  Please keep in mind that we cannot accommodate requests for specific teachers, class periods, or classmates, and changes are limited by space available in classes.

COLLEGE BOUND SENIORS:  Consider registering for the ACT/SAT Exams.
The CSU/UC universities are no longer using ACT/SAT test scores for admissions purposes. However, other universities may require one of these exams, or they may have a test-optional policy, which means an excellent score can add value to an application.  They may be required by specific programs, the NCAA, or scholarships.  Please visit www.collegeboard.org to register for the SAT Exams.  Students can access personalized test prep based on their PSAT results through their College Board accounts.  Please visit www.act.org to register for the ACT Exam.  Students may prepare for these exams using the online tools listed under Testing Info to the left.
