Matoaca High School
Scheduling Process: 2014-2015

Teacher Recommendations
Teachers recommend for ALL core classes (English, Science, Social Studies, Math, Foreign Language) - but, it will benefit you to discuss appropriate levels with your teacher.

NO Contracts
- levels and class recommendations are based on your performance to date...including test scores, class participation, assignment completion, etc

Recommendations will be on your course request - review with parent/guardian and return to school by February 12!!!

Remember, you should be challenging yourself academically each year - we are not a
"minimum requirement school"

Do I really need 7 classes???
Yes, Matoaca High School is not a "minimum requirement school" - the expectation is that you will take 7 classes every year of high school!

Keeps your options open...even if you're not sure about college yet, you may want to go someday and need all of the necessary pre-requisites to qualify

Colleges want to see that you took as many courses as possible while still in high school
