As this school year ends, please remember that all KHS schedule change requests need to be submitted to the KHS Counselors’ office for 10-12 grade students and the KMS front office for 9th grade students by May 23, 2019 (the last day of school).  Schedule change forms are available in the KHS counselors’ office, the KMS front office.  

Please note the following new course offerings and updates to current course offerings that are available to your student as this could impact his or her course requests for next year.


Music Appreciation (FA15) Credit: 1 Grade Level: 9-12   GPA: Regular

Prerequisite: None

Course Description: This is a non-performance class that explores music of various styles through listening experiences. All styles of music are covered (classical, folk, music theater, jazz, popular, etc.). Investigations of composers and performers integral to the styles are included in the class. Activities include listening, discussions, projects, and presentations on each style of music.


Freshmen students interested in pursuing an advanced science track will have the option to take Advanced Biology and Advanced Chemistry in a block 2 period format, completing one course (Biology or Chemistry) in the first semester and the other course in the second semester.  Students who complete Biology in the first semester will take the Biology EOC in December and students who complete Biology in the second semester will take the Biology EOC in May. Both Biology and Chemistry courses in this format are advanced and will be assigned grade points on a 5.0 scale.  Students will need to drop an elective course from their course requests when choosing this option because this will take up two consecutive periods in the day.


Students are able to take any courses that they have not previously taken if they have satisfied all prerequisites and are within the grade level range specified in the current academic planning guide.  


AP World History (GPA:  6.0) was first offered in 2018-19 to all sophomores as a route to satisfy the world history course requirement for high school graduation.  Juniors and Seniors can also elect to take AP World History as a social studies elective in addition to their required social studies course to possibly earn college credit.  

AP Human Geography (GPA 6.0) will be offered for the first time in 2019-2020  to all Freshmen as a route to satisfy the world geography course requirement for high school graduation.  Sophomores, Juniors, and Seniors may also elect to take AP Human Geography as a social studies elective in addition to their required social studies course to possibly earn college credit.


The predicted cost of an OnRamps course is $149.  There is no additional costs for books or materials.  This cost will be due in the fall, and more information will also be available at the beginning of the school year.
