Course Selection for 2023-24

School Counselors are excited to have the opportunity to meet individually this year! Please note that students will be meeting one on one with their Counselor and will NOT need to reach out directly to schedule a time to meet. The schedule for each grade level is shown below. If students have taken a course like HPE over the summer or are not currently enrolled in the course (not to worry) Counselors will still find time to meet with students during that scheduled time frame.

Rising 12 Academic Advising: Feb 13—Feb 24 in English

Rising 11 Academic Advising: Jan 30—Feb 10 in HPE 10

Rising 10 Academic Advising: Feb 27—March 10 in HPE 9

Students not enrolled in above/online course will meet separately

What can students do to prepare for our meeting? Please use this time to consider 7 course selections and 3 alternate electives after reviewing the following resources:

-Conversations with the current teacher during Academic Days of Emphasis January 12 & 13

-Course catalog for descriptions

-Virtual Electives Fair website for short videos of Robinson offerings

-Core class comparisons

-Rising 11th or 12th grade students on track for the IB diploma should be meeting with IB Diploma Coordinators, Ms. Vu and Ms. Cho, prior to their academic advising window.
