Q: Do Freshman have to take both College and Career Planning (CCP) and Health?
A: Health is a graduation requirement; CCP is no longer a graduation requirement but still an elective that is paired with health. Both Health and CCP are semester-long courses. Students who elect to take Health during their Freshman year will have CCP assigned to them in the opposite semester.
Q: Can I level up to an Honors class?
A: Maybe. If your student would like to level up to an honors class that they did not qualify for based on their 8th grade grades they might have a chance to do so. Tesoro will not know the answer until the summer during walk through registration. In order to have a chance to level up your student must do the following TWO things: 1) Attend the 9th grade walk-through registration day during the summer to meet with their school counselor. At this time they will be able to see if there is room in the honors class or not. 2) If there is room then the parent and student must sign a waiver form. This form commits the student to stay in the class for the entire year and eliminates their ability to level out. 
Any leveling up must be done before the first day of school during walk through registration. 
Q: Can I take two electives and not Health my Freshman year?
A: Yes. Freshman have room in their schedules to take two electives. In order to take two electives, students must complete the Health requirement during summer school or other alternative method. To sign up for Health over summer, please contact your MIDDLE SCHOOL Guidance department.
Q: Can I take AP Human Geography?
A: AP Human Geography is an elective course available to Freshmen who are concurrently enrolled in Honors English I or meet the criteria for Honors English I. This class is currently only offered in 9th grade. You can add this class to your course requests. It will be considered one of your elective choices. 
Q: How do middle school students sign up for summer school?
A: Each student needs to contact their MIDDLE SCHOOL Guidance department.  CUSD summer school has a limited number of seats and middle school students will fill the remaining seats after the current high school students are signed up.  
Q: Do all students have to take PE?
A: Yes. All Freshman must be enrolled in a PE class. The PE options are PE activities 9, Athletic sport, & Marching Band. Students who are nationally ranked in an individual sport can apply for Independent PE.
IPE for the 2024-25 school year - if you are currently an IPE student in the 2023-24 school year, you will need to complete the form to be considered for the IPE program for the 2024-25 school year. New IPE students will also need to complete the IPE Application and turn it in at your school site for approval.
Q: If I have a question who do I contact?
A: While still enrolled as an 8th grade student, you are to contact your middle school Counselor. They have all of the information you will need to complete the transition process. 


**Requirements for individual grade levels may be different.  Please contact your school counselor for specific grade level requirements.
