    2018-19 Course Descriptions

    Course Change Requests:
    ONLY students who have holes in their schedule (not scheduled for 6 courses per semester), 12th grade students who are missing a graduation requirement, and Running Start students who need to adjust their schedules will be considered for a course change request. Course change request forms must be submitted within the first 3 school days. Due to a lack of time and resources and the high number of requests, Counselors WILL NOT accept or consider course change requests for teacher/course preferences other than the circumstances mentioned above.

    Newly Assigned Students for the Current School Year: Contact Ms. Chow, the registrar 206-252-2364. She will verify your enrollment at GHS and Ms. Ikegami, the counseling secretary 206-252-2304, will collect the required documents for your intake meeting which include: Transcript, Current Withdrawal Grades, Discipline History, Attendance Records, State Testing Scores, IEP Documentation (if applicable), and 504 Plan (if applicable).  Once the documents have been received, Ms. Ikegami will schedule your mandatory intake meeting with the principal and your counselor.

    *AP and Honors courses require additional homework.  Careful consideration regarding the number of AP and Honors courses and your commitments to activities is vital to ensure that your high school experience is not overly stressful!
