Grade 11 Program

In the Grade 11 program, students are given the opportunity to begin to delve deeper into subject areas. Grade 11 students have the option of taking some Advanced Placement courses and, in some cases, Grade 12 courses. It is recommended that students take six to seven courses, but are limited to a maximum of eight. Students choosing AP science courses may be limited to seven courses in the regular timetable. If a student chooses more courses then something must be taken outside of the regular timetable.
