From the time students enter kindergarten, they are preparing for high school graduation. Recognizing the importance of high school to future success, the student and parent/guardian should develop a course of study in partnership with the school counselor and classroom teachers.
Chatham County Schools operates under a Student/Parent Informed Choice System or "open registration." Students are encouraged to register in courses providing the highest academic challenge to their abilities. Parents/guardians and students should carefully study the high school planning document and review the course listings and graduation requirements. Parents/guardians and their children should discuss the student’s goals, interests, past school grades, performance on standardized tests, personal habits, attitude toward school, aptitudes, responsibilities outside the school, and other factors that may have an impact on the success of the student in a given course.
It is the purpose of Chatham County Schools to provide equal educational opportunities to all students, regardless of race, color, national origin, sex, or handicap.
High School Course Registration = Career & College Planning!
The mission of the Chatham County Schools is to graduate globally competitive, well-rounded students by providing a rigorous and relevant curriculum in an effective, safe, and nurturing learning environment.
We serve and support students, parents, teachers, and administrators at three traditional schools: Chatham Central, Jordan-Matthews, and Northwood. We also serve and support non-traditional opportunities at SAGE Academy and our Early College High School, the Chatham School of Science & Engineering.
Our high school programs emphasize the importance of planning for college and careers through engaging courses, extracurricular activities, job shadowing, and volunteering. In this environment of high expectations with high levels of support the success of each student stems from critical reading, critical writing, and critical thinking in each classroom, each day.
