The major goal of the East Brunswick Public Schools grades 8-12 program is to provide students an academically challenging and personally rewarding educational experience leading to their high school graduation and success in post-high school study or a career. The academic program is designed to provide the foundation and preparedness for all students to maximize their post- secondary options.
This course guide is designed to assist you with the important task of planning your program of studies from grades 8-12. The course guide includes an introductory section devoted exclusively to the eighth grade; followed by a 9-12 section as well as information as to who you can contact to get further explanations of course offerings and the scheduling process. In addition, your school counselor is always available to provide whatever supplementary advice and information you might need to make the most appropriate and realistic course selections. It is of paramount importance that you and your parents carefully and thoughtfully consider the many courses listed in this guide.
The course selection process that you and your counselor work on together will guide you toward fulfilling your junior and senior high school requirements and place you in the right direction for realizing your post-secondary aspirations. Throughout your junior and senior high school years, you, your counselor, teachers and your parents will work cooperatively and collaboratively to help you plan and prepare for your post-secondary goals. Schedule an appointment to see your counselor as often as necessary to discuss test results, grades, college and career goals after high school, or any other matter of concern that arises during your junior/senior high school experience.
All students and parents should make every effort to read and review the online course guide to familiarize you with the scheduling guidelines, important dates and deadlines, promotion/graduation requirements, grading and attendance policies, college eligibility for intercollegiate athletics, summer advancement contracts and contact information for the district’s subject area specialists who can provide the most detailed information regarding their course offerings.
