9th Grade Course Selection Process

High School Planning for Upcoming 9th Graders

The course selection process for "rising 9th graders" is long but logical. The chronological sequence is as follows:

January - 'PHS Experience for 8th Grade' at the High School on Wednesday, January 6th at 6:00pm

February to April - Students meet with their counselor for academic advisement and course selection. Teachers make recommendations for academic placement based upon predetermined departmental criteria. Parents/guardians are encouraged to take part in this important decision making process.  

May and June - Academic teachers revise recommendations as warranted.

Summer- All inquiries and changes of course requests for upcoming 9th graders must be made at Piscataway High School during the summer. Schedules can be viewed in Genesis.
