Course Registration



You have a unique opportunity to make some decisions that will influence your future. The planning of your high school program is an important transition in your life. The choices you make with regard to these courses will have a direct impact upon your future options. This process does not need to be overwhelming, but it should be taken seriously. You do need to know that each decision you make in high school will affect the options available to you later. It is better to develop a plan that keeps all of your options open. Minneapolis Public Schools’ graduation requirements provide minimum pathways to 4 year college and university admission standards. For that reason, it is important for you to plan as challenging a course program as you can. You should try to find courses that meet your needs and interests and allow you to keep your post secondary options open. The Southwest curriculum is rich in both academics and the fine arts, and provides pathways in the career and technical education fields. There is a wide range of offerings to meet all student needs. Your counselor can help provide a clear picture of the high school plan you choose to follow. Don’t hesitate to schedule an appointment with your counselor.
