elective-courseOrlando Science Schools will be offering academic/athletic electives for grades 7-12 for the 2017-18 academic year. Academic electives are designed to encourage and help our Gifted/Advanced and students, who are seeking challenge to participate in academic competitions.

We will also have classes that focus on Science, Technology, Engineering, Math and Social Studies. We strongly encourage our students to challenge themselves beyond the expected grade level curriculum, and we believe these classes will provide support for this goal.

Students will be assigned to ONLY one of these classes in their elective period. Enrolling in these classes neither requires, nor guarantees competing in the actual tournaments if the elective has a related competition. Students, who do not make their selection will be assigned one of the academic electives.

Orlando Science will always continue to provide appropriate courses in the core areas of Math, Language Arts, Science and Social Studies, as well as Electives like World Languages, Computer Science, Sports and Music. These classes will be offered based on the student’s progression plan, graduation requirements, student preferences and course availability. Please be aware of that and the students who need help in reading and math based upon the statewide assessment results may be required to take support classes instead of these courses.

We kindly ask you to choose top 3 choices for these classes. We will do our best to provide every student with his/her first choice. Please feel free to contact us should you have any questions.
