At Park View Education Centre we believe in providing a wide variety of opportunities for students. This is reflected in the number of course options we offer. The Department of Education, in an effort to prepare students for the 21st century, has also promoted many new and exciting courses and programs. The challenge for any high school is to sustain a minimum number of students in each of their classes. For many specialty courses, only one section or class is offered. This creates scheduling difficulties when other courses are offered in the same block of time. Park View’s enrollment has been on the decline since 2002. This impacts our ability to sustain some courses.
It is not possible for us to offer every course that is included in the course book. Final decisions on this year’s course offerings is primarily determined by the number of students selecting the course at the time of spring registration.
It is important that students select courses carefully and with consideration to their graduation requirements, post secondary plans, personal interests and abilities. We strongly encourage all students to consult with a guidance counsellor when making their final decisions.
Students will be contacted if a course (or courses) they have selected is not offered. They will be given the opportunity to select alternate courses.
For a complete description of all courses, please consult the Course Handbook - 2012-2013 in the Departments Tab under Counselling Centre/Courses.
