PTHS Curriculum Guide 2024-2025

TO THE STUDENT AND PARENTS This Curriculum Guide should provide most of the information you need to plan a successful and rewarding high school experience. It can also assist in choosing electives most appropriate for your post-high school plans. Your counselor can expand further on opportunities after high school and make suggestions appropriate for your interests and abilities. We stress the importance of seeking help from the counselors whenever a question comes to you. Our primary concern is that your experience at Pontiac Township High School be worthwhile. We urge you to seek whatever help you need in planning your program; your first step toward a successful four-year experience rests with your course choices and four-year plan. The course listings and descriptions that follow should help to that end.
