It’s that time of year where we are choosing our classes for our next year in high school, meeting with our counselors to figure our schedules out. There’s a good chance that you could be feeling a little overwhelmed, and not sure what you want to do. Here are five tips you could use if you’re feeling stuck, courtesy of Ukiah High counselor Angelina Gutierrez.

  1. Watch the pre-recorded counseling video. It has information that you can use for getting a start on choosing your classes.
  2. Have knowledge on how to access and read your transcript, since it’s important to know how many credits you earned. The transcript will tell you if you’re on the right track towards graduation.
  3. Keep your goals for high school in mind. Think about plans for what you want to do after, but primarily focus on your high school plans for right now. For example, if you want to be a CTE or A-G completer, or both, your classes can be chosen accordingly.
  4. Look through the classes you can enroll in, and choose the ones that align with your interests AND plans.
  5. Complete the Grades 10-12 Class Selection Supplemental Form to provide backup electives, you never know if one of the ones you’re applying for wound up being full already.

With this in mind, you can now go out and choose the classes you want without the confusion from before. We wish you the best of luck for the goals – and classes – you want.
