Course Selection for 11th Grade

Hello Juniors (this post is for you if you’re currently in 11th grade at Galileo HS),

We hope all of you are safe, healthy, and keeping busy during this shelter in place. We know this is a confusing time and want to let you know that we are here to support you. There are important updates that we would like to share with you regarding the counseling department and school closures.

Course Selection

 

Since the school closure has been extended to May 1st. We are asking all students to complete their course requests online. Please pass the word on to your classmates and friends to check their school email ASAP.

 

About two  weeks ago you received an email informing you all that the online portal was open for you to enter in your courses with the 12th grade course selection sheet attached. If you didn’t enter them yet, that is ok! We are asking everyone to select their courses by April 5th.   Click here to view this helpful video on how to select your courses online!

 

Attached is the 12th grade course list for your review. You can also refer to the Galileo Course Catalog HERE to learn more about the various classes offered at Galileo.

 

Some things to remember about choosing classes for Senior year:

  • ·American Democracy (1 semester) and Economics (1 semester) are paired classes.

  • AP Gov. (1 semester) and Economics Honors (1 semester) are also paired.

  • Think about having a 4th year of Math.

  • Remember you can only fit 7 classes in your schedule. (Democracy & Econ count as two.)

  • Make sure you complete all requirements (even PE or Health/College & Career).

  • Indicate alternates for electives and AP/Honors courses just in case you don’t get your first choice.

  • We are now accepting the AP Commitment Form online!  Complete this form after you have registered for classes to indicate your interest in taking AP or Honors.  AP/ Honors Commitment Form LINKED HERE Complete this form by April 20th.

 

Self-Care

Please remember to practice self-care in this difficult time. Take the time to do something you love:  listen to a favorite song, read a new book, or practice yoga (Check out this 15 Minute Yoga for Beginners Class! ). Whatever brings you joy.

 

Communication

 

Students can email your counselors regarding course selection, college/scholarship help, or just to check in.  Counselors will be available via Zoom video chat starting April 6th. Email to schedule an appointment.  Please stay in touch!
