The staff at Stevens High School recommends that students consider career interests and scholarship requirements to make course choices.


Students are encouraged to enroll in eight courses per semester; however, the student’s typical academic performance and participation in extracurricular activities should be considered when determining class load. Some students might find six credits to be a more appropriate course load.


Students will not be allowed to remove any course selections after February 26, 2020, as staffing is based on students’ course selections. Staffing is based on students’ course selections; therefore, dropping a class will only be allowed in rare and unique circumstances.
