• Course Selection

    We expect students, after discussion with their parents, teachers, and counselors, to choose their courses with care. It is important that students select courses that will help them achieve their future educational and/or career goals. Alternate courses must also be selected and should be ones that the students want to take if their first choices are unavailable. Occasionally, a course listed in the program of studies will not be offered due to low student enrollment or is unavailable due to a conflict with another course. Please also note, changes made by the State of Florida DOE may not be reflected in this Curriculum Guide due to changes not being finalized prior to printing. 

    Course Prerequisites

    Entry-level courses, in most cases, have no prerequisites and are open to all students. However, as students progress to upper level classes, basic skills must have been mastered in order for students to be successful. At North Marion High School, we want all students to be successful at the highest academic level possible.Through working with students, we have found that students who meet the prerequisites designated in the Program of Studies are most successful. If a student wishes to enroll in a course and has not met the prerequisites, the parent should arrange a conference with the student’s guidance counselor.
