  • Schedules & Registration 2020-2021: 

    Registration for the 2020-2021 school year will be starting on January 13th. Students need to have access to their AERIES student portal in order to select classes for next year. Parents will be able to view their students choices using their AERIES parent portal but only the student portal can make the changes. Counselors will be visiting 9th-11th grade students in their English classes and will also be visiting 8th grade schools to help students register for their classes. Please note that while we make every effort to get students their first choice classes, they must always have a backup/alternative class. Please also note that from January 13th-February 7th counselors will be in classrooms the majority of the time and may take longer than normal to respond to emails and phone calls. Information on classes, graduation requirements, and A-G requirements can all be found on the counseling website. After registration is over, counselors will hold junior conferences from mid February-March and then sophomore conferences in late March-April to review students choices for next year. Please save the important dates: College Night on Thursday, February 6th at 6pm and AP/Honors Night on Thursday, February 20th at 6pm. Both of these evening events will help students and parents to better understand classes as well as the four year college process.
