Course Selection Materials
Incoming freshmen will be placed into specific English, Math, and Science courses based on placement test scores and recommendations from 8th grade teachers. Most freshmen at Hoffman Estates High School will participate in two self-selected elective courses. Elective courses provide students the opportunity to pursue special interest areas within the academic curriculum.
Elective course selection sheets and the District 211 Curriculum Guide (https://adc.d211.org/curriculum-guide) will be made available to students at their junior high schools this fall. The elective course selection sheet displays all available elective courses, placement test score ranges associated with individual courses, and the alignment of each elective course to specific career clusters. Due date Wednesday, December 18, 2019.
