    2020-2021 Registration Information

    Highland Park Families:
     
    We are extending the 2020-2021 course registration deadline to Friday, April 17th. This will help students focus on Distance Learning and allow counselors more time to answer your questions before you complete your registration. Please consider the following:
     
    - Make your choices to the best of your ability. Use the Course Catalog and contact your current teachers if you have questions about subject levels (Accelerated, SL, HL).
    - Counselors can make changes to your selections later if necessary.
    - There is a space on the registration form that asks if you would like a phone/online meeting with your counselor. Counselors will see this and will reach out to you as they are able throughout the spring.
     
    Thank you for your patience. We are responding to your messages as quickly as we can, and we appreciate your cooperation as we move forward.

    Highland Park Families:
     
    We have a new process for 2020-2021 course registration. We are no longer holding a "Registration Day" and students are no longer registering online in Student Portal. We have instead created separate Google Forms for current 9th, 10th and 11th graders. This Google Form has listed all of the courses from our grade-level registration forms. Students will be asked to select their courses for next year on these Google Forms and counselors will enter the course requests into Campus manually as students submit their answers. We posted this information on Schoology for students on 03/25/2020 and students are required to submit their responses by the end of the day on 04/13/2020. Please contact your student's counselor with questions.
