AP and Electives Fair

Parents & Students,


Please review the electives course videos and presentations to learn more about your options. Also, more details can be found in the LHS Course Description Guide

It is very important that you make informed choices for your elective classes. In order to have a better chance at securing your top choices, it's important to be certain on the front end and to avoid schedule changes. You must choose 4 electives that you're interested in, so we have more options for creating your schedule. If you do not choose your electives, we will schedule you in what's available.


A timeline of scheduling can also be found here: (English)  (Spanish)


You can also find out more information on How to Enter Elective Course Request into infinite campus here: (English) (Spanish)

Advancement Placement (AP)
Advanced Placement is an exciting opportunity to take more rigorous course offerings.  AP courses are college-level courses.  Please keep this in mind as you choose an AP course.  The requirements will be aligned with what is expected of a college-level student.  Usually, an AP Commitment form is required because of the rigor of AP courses, but this year, an AP application is only required for the following reasons: 
  • It is your first time taking an AP course
  • You were unsuccessful in a previous AP course
  • Your current teacher recommended you for another course level
Students and parents, instead of signing the AP form like we have in the past, please read the form and fill in this Google Form that you acknowledge and agree with the parameters of the AP Agreement

If any of the above applies to you, please submit the application and your counselor will follow up with you.

Click the link to the class to learn more about the class or contact the teacher specialist for more information.

Student Wellness Survey

The Georgia Student Health Survey, Georgia Parent Survey, and Georgia School Personnel Survey will not be administered during the 2020-21 school year. Instead, we have developed a brief Student Wellness Survey which will be administered to middle- and high-school students. The administration window will be open from February 1, 2021 through April 2, 2021.
The Student Wellness Survey was designed to collect data on student wellness during the current school year; it is anonymous and completely voluntary and includes questions about peer and adult social support, bullying, stress, mental health, substance abuse, and suicidal ideation. There is no mandatory participation rate required by GaDOE and no thresholds to meet for the survey, since it is voluntary. The data will not be used to calculate School Climate Star Ratings. The survey results will provide districts and schools with data regarding the non-academic barriers to learning being faced by their students.
