    Freshman Information

     

    Your Freshman year is a time to adjust to high school and a great time to get involved in clubs, sports and activities. Research shows students who are involved in extracurricular activities such as sports, clubs, etc., perform better in school. It is important that Freshman get involved and become a part of the school community for more than just six periods a day.

    Freshman year also is an excellent time to think about what you would like to do when you graduate and make an appointment with your counselor or visit the EHS Career Center to talk about your plan.
     
    A typical Freshman schedule includes:
    Math
    English
    Science
    Physical Education (at least one semester--can be first or second semester)
    Health (one semester--can be first or second semester)

    In addition to these core classes students will have two periods of the day designated to elective classes. Students planning to attend a four-year university directly after High School will want to be sure and take at least two years of a world language and many students choose to take a world language their 9th and 10th grade years.

    If a student does not pass any semester of the Math, English, Science, Health or PE, he or she will need to re-take and pass that class either in summer school, online or by re-taking the class during the school day--and missing opportunities to take other classes--or take a 5th year of high school before they can graduate. Make high school easy by passing all your classes the first time. If you are struggling in a class, work something out with the teacher or meet with the counselor. Don't wait until there is an F on your transcript.

    Please make an appointment with your counselor if you do not have one or more of the core classes listed above. Click here to see a copy of Everett High Schools Graduation Plan. This lists the classes you need to take to graduate from EHS.
