Gibbs High School Registration 2015-2016 School Year
Your High School Years These 4 years are the most exciting and important years that you will spend in school. You have lots of choices to make about what you study! It is important to know that the choices you make for 10 th, 11 th, & 12 th grade will prepare you for college, careers, and/or technical school.

Registration Timeline Since Registration will take place over a 3 week time period – Advisors will collect all materials at the end of each class. Make sure you turn in all of your materials at the end of each class. You will need them again during the next session!

Remember: Everyone, in every kind of job, needs to be able to write and speak clearly, listen carefully, understand what is written and spoken, and use math effectively. Why Is This Important?
Begin Thinking About Your Course Selections… You will choose your courses for next year in two weeks! Consider taking courses in the area that you want to study in college or your future career field. Explore different career areas while your classes are FREE in high school. Don’t know what you want to do with your future?? That’s ok! You have time to figure out what interests you, what you are good at, and how those things add up to a career.

Choose Wisely… Ask Yourself: Are the courses that I am taking preparing me for what I want to do after high school? Am I certain of my elective choices? Remember : Selections are final and schedules will not be changed unless there is an error. Also, courses are sometimes dropped or full, and an alternate may be used. Make sure you carefully consider your alternate choices!
In Closing… Your Advisor, Your Teachers, and Your School Counselors are Here to Help You! Good Luck as you Register for Next Year!
