15 Hints for course selection
Choose classes that will challenge but not overwhelm you. Choose classes based on your post secondary goals and interests- NOT which classes your friends are choosing. Gains in G.P.A and class rank come from a combination of challenging courses AND good grades. Talk to your teacher for advice!

16 AP and PAP Programs GCISD is allowing open enrollment in PAP and AP programs, however it is always best to consider outside activities, previous academic record, and the time commitment required for advanced level courses when making your course selections.

17 Pre-AP/AP Classes Pre-Advanced (PAP) courses are designed to prepare students for the entry into Advanced Placement (AP) courses and to meet the unique needs of qualified students. Basic content is the same as the regular course, but instruction allows for more in-depth and accelerated pacing. Preparation time (outside of school) is estimated to be 1- 1 ½ hours per class period.

18 Program of Studies Book
Please review the many elective choices available in the POS book. A description of each course is available and can help you make choices about classes that will be of interest to you. The Program of Studies book is located on the GCISD website under the “parents and students” tab. The POS is also available on the GCISD district website under the Parents and Students section. 18
