COURSE SELECTION AT LAHS
8th grade students are given some flexibility in their course selection at LAHS. Freshman English and World Studies are taken by all 9th graders; however Math and Science have several levels from which to choose.
The Egan website’s Math course sequence diagram is helpful for determining which Math course to select. Freshman Math options include Algebra I, Geometry or Geometry Honors. Freshman Science options include Earth Science and Biology. Egan teachers (Math & Science) and counselors can help with course selection. Most 9th graders also take a language and PE. Students may take up to 7 periods (or 8, if you count zero period). Other options include Band/Orchestra, Choral Music, Art, and additional electives listed in the LAHS Curriculum Handbook (pdf download).
