Monte Vista High School  Course Scheduling

Welcome to the 2020-2021 School Year!  The Monte Vista Counseling Department wants to keep you informed of our schedule so that you can make the best decisions regarding your high school academic plan. 

During the months of March and April the Counselors will meet with current students to discuss Course Scheduling for the 2020-2021 School Year.  We encourage parents to attend the Parent Information Meeting on February 27th at 6:15pm where our Monte Vista Counselors will present an overview of transcripts, graduation requirements, Naviance for vocational/college planning and have a Question & Answer session.  

Due to the high volume of requests for Counselors to meet with students, parent appointments will not be available during the months of February and March. Students, please sign up early if you need to see us to create an academic plan for next year.

Course Planning: 

  1. District Course Catalog: 

The District Course Catalog provides you with course descriptions for Monte Vista High School course offerings as well as university designations for college admission requirements.  For example:  Art 1, Theater Arts 1, Orchestra, and Women’s Ensemble are all designated as Performing Fine Arts courses for college admission and Fine Art credit for graduation requirements whereas Culinary Arts 1 is a Vocational/Applied Art and not accepted for college admission requirements, but counts for high school graduation.
