Course Guide contains many opportunities at Lakewood High School

Postby Edward Favre » Thu Feb 08, 2018 6:12 am

Students at Lakewood High School and middle school 8th graders are busy poring over the latest LHS Course Guide in preparation for filling out schedule requests for next school year. They are likely finding that the hardest part of the process is narrowing down the choices from a course selection that is arguably the broadest in the state with more than 200 courses.

There are the basics like English, Algebra 1, U.S. History and Biology, but not many other schools offer Horticulture, Fantasy/Science Fiction in Literature, Fashion Design & Global Foods. Not to mention the four foreign languages, 16 Advanced Placement classes and the 12 West Shore Career-Tech programs housed at Lakewood High. West Shore includes such diverse options as Theatre Arts, Cisco Networking, Automotive Technology and Culinary Arts, where students have the opportunity to run their own restaurant.

The music curriculum has performance classes of five orchestras, five choirs and three bands in addition to Music Theory and AP Music Theory, Piano and Music History. Students can also join extracurricular ensembles such as the Ranger Marching Band and The Lakewood Project. The same wide selection can be found in the Arts Department.

With the variety of classes and extracurricular activities available, there is something for every student.
