In ninth grade, Language B (Spanish or French) is a daily one-period class.   Freshmen have one elective choice from the full menu of our school master schedule.   Other academic courses are taken in two hour blocks on a three day (A,B,C) cycle.   This schedule permits students to take seven classes as well as a non-credit class called "academic coaching" which permits students an opportunity to work with classmates on group projects, prepare assignments, do research, or even pre-sit or re-sit other subjects.  They may even use this time to confer with available teachers for additional help in subjects, as needed.

Daily traditional classes are scheduled in periods 1 - 6.  Pre-IB and IB block classes are numbered 8 - 16.
