Planning the Freshman Schedule
Watauga High School operates on a Block Schedule. This means that with a few exceptions, students will have 4, 90 minute courses for the 1st semester, which will be completed at the end of the semester. The student will then have 4 different courses for the 2nd semester for a total of 8 courses each year.
During registration, we will plan for each of those 8 courses for the student's Freshman year. Five of those eight courses must be ENGLISH, WORLD HISTORY, EARTH & ENVIRONMENTAL SCIENCE, MATH & HEALTHFUL LIVING. Depending on the student's individual scheduling needs, there will be from 1 to 3 elective slots available. Please think about the list of courses available to Freshman and plan for 6 elective class choices, in order of preference from 1st to 6th. WHS will develop a schedule based on those choices that will most effectively work for the student. Please be aware that during registration there is not a way to request a course be taken in a particular class period, semester or with a specific teacher.
