Scheduling Classes/Reports

Scheduling Procedures

  • All students are guaranteed enrollment in all required classes, e.g. New Testament. Availability may be limited in elective classes, e.g. Visual Art 2/Drawing.
  • Incoming freshman students are placed into courses after analysis of their entrance test scores, review of personal requests, and assessment of their junior high school transcripts.
  • Transfer students are placed into courses after consideration of their personal requests and assessment of their high school transcripts.

Continuing students review placements and select classes in the second semester for the following year. When maximum class enrollment is reached in elective classes, students are placed in alternate selections. Again, elective enrollments are not finalized until the master schedule is completed. 

Schedule Changes

Students seeking a schedule change may do so at no cost during the Add/Drop period (July 25, 2016 through August 8, 2016) by emailing Mrs. Lori Robowski. Emails are the preferred method of communication and will receive the quickest and most complete response. If email is not available, please leave a message at (408) 342-4216. When leaving a message, include your full name, ID number, the change request, and your daytime telephone number. Please speak slowly and distinctly when leaving a voice message and please call only once. All emails and phone calls will be answered in the order in which they are received. After the August 8, 2016 there will be a $25.00 fee for any change to first or second semester classes. The final date to add or drop a class is August 31, 2016.

Students making a request to drop a course after school begins must have written parent and counselor approval.

Schedule Change Fee

Students will be charged a fee of $25.00 for adding or dropping a class after the add/drop deadline unless the change is initiated by the Administration. Second semester changes must be completed prior to the beginning of the second semester.

Report Cards and Unofficial Transcripts

Report cards are posted to the AMHS webstie at the end of each academic quarter and semester. Unofficial transcripts are also updated and posted. Parents may go to Quicklinks on the website to link to this information.
