Scheduling Calendar

AMHS registers students into two types of courses, restricted courses (e.g. honors and AP courses) and elective courses. The department chair places students in restricted courses for next year according to demonstrated academic achievement in classes this year. Students may choose different elective courses based upon student interest and available seats in the particular courses.


Student Scheduling Calendar 2023/2024

Our scheduling process for the 2023-2024 year begins in January.

Students enrolled in our core college preparatory classes are automatically enrolled in the next level of college preparatory class, e.g. Geometry students move on to Algebra II. The complete course list including all pre-requisites will be available in January on our Website ( under Academics/ Department Pages.

Parents are encouraged to contact the appropriate department chair with questions regarding their student's academic program.
