High School Registration
Dear incoming and current high school students and families: This high school course handbook contains information needed to register for next school year. Please read carefully. Give serious consideration to your course selections. Registration is a commitment to take the courses you have selected for the upcoming school year. Remember you are requesting a specific course, not a specific teacher, time, and/or place. Every effort will be made to schedule students for the courses selected. Qualified students may enroll in any course regardless of ethnic origin, sex, race or handicapping condition.
All high schools are fully accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools, the regional accreditation agency, and by the State Department of Public Instruction. This accreditation means Rockingham County Schools have met and/or surpassed a strict set of national standards of educational excellence.
Students in Rockingham County are required to complete a Senior Project. The project has four components: a research paper, a portfolio, a product, and a presentation. More information regarding Senior Project can be found on the RCS website. Additionally, students who entered ninth grade in 2006-2007 or later are required to be proficient (level III or IV) on five essential end-of-course tests: Algebra I, Biology, Civics & Economics, English I, and US History.
Course selections should be taken very seriously. Please make sure you listen to the advice of school officials when selecting courses and alternates. Schedule changes WILL ONLY BE GRANTED if there is an academic misplacement. If you have any questions regarding this process please contact the school.
Additional courses available to Rockingham County High School students include: Rockingham Community College Courses, APEX Learning, and North Carolina Virtual Public School. For details, contact your school counselor or 336-627-2621.
