High School Registration for 2018-2019 opens in November

The Peoria Public Schools High School Curriculum Fairs for the 2018-2019 year will be held:

  • Richwoods High School on Tuesday, November 7, 5:30 to 7 p.m.
  • Manual Academy on Wednesday, November 8, 5:30 – 7 p.m.
  • Peoria High School on Thursday, November 9, 5:30 – 7 p.m.

The High School Curriculum Fairs are for students in grades 8 – 11 and their parents to plan and register for next year’s classes. You can learn more about the course registration process by visiting www.peoriapublicschools.org/registration.

It is important to speak with your student’s counselor and choose the correct classes for your career pathway.  Each student will receive a curriculum guide the first full week of November.

There are several exciting high school curriculum options for next year: First, the AppsCo program will be expanded to Peoria High School and Manual Academy and the course will be implemented during the school day at all three schools.  Three levels of this entrepreneurship, marketing and business management class will be offered, the first – AppsCo I - aimed at next year’s sophomores, AppsCo II will be added in 2019/2020 and AppsCo III added in 2020/2021, all giving students real world experience. 

Second, is the introduction of Teacher Education and Early Childhood Educator pathways.

Also at the upcoming fairs, students and parents can learn about Equal Opportunity Schools, Early College or dual credit, and AP classes, as well as the expanding programs at the Woodruff Career and Technical Center.
