WPHS Course Selection Process

Each spring, students and parents make course selections for the next school year. This process should be discussed at home and carefully planned so that you receive the best high school education possible to meet your future goals. Students and parents are reminded that course changes will not be permitted during the school year unless the course is an error on a student’s schedule. Please review the WPHS Schedule Change Policy for more details.
