Subject Selection for 2015-2016
Subject Selection forms were distributed to all students in homeroom on April 21st.  These are to be completed with the help of teachers and parents.  Honors and Advanced Placement courses require a teacher's signature.  All forms are due to student services by April 24th.  Student Services will do their best to accommodate your child's choices.
Testing Update
As you may know, M-DCPS recently eliminated some testing that had been scheduled to follow the regular FSA and EOC tests.  These tests were District Designated End of Course Assessments that were in addition to our previously scheduled tests. 
 
The testing schedule below is still in effect, since students will still take their regular End of Course Assessments in Civics, Algebra 1, Algebra 2, Geometry, Biology, and U.S. History.
