Principal's Letter

Letter from Your Principals

The Allentown School District is excited to share the 2018-19 Program of Studies.  It is designed to guide you to the important information needed to select your courses for the upcoming school year.

Our high schools offer a wide variety of academic courses designed to prepare you for the future.  Please review the courses listed and described on the following pages with your parents.  It is important to develop an academic plan based on your personal interests and future goals.  Careful consideration should be given to the course descriptions, graduation requirements and program options contained in this booklet. 

As you prepare to build your schedule for next year, we encourage you to challenge yourself both in your academic coursework and your investment in extracurricular activities.  Take an advanced class in your favorite subject area. 

Get involved.  Students who are connected to school by participating in activities stay engaged in their classes and are generally more successful in school. 

Our staff is here to ensure your high school experience is a special one.  Should you have any questions about the registration process, please talk with one of your teachers, an administrator, or make an appointment to see your guidance counselor.  We will all do our best to address your questions and concerns.
