The Program of Studies Guide provides information about junior/senior high school requirements as well as course offerings and descriptions of courses that will be available to students in grades 7-12.
The information in the Program of Studies Guide is organized into two sections. Our program section provides details about graduation requirements, course credit, grading and honor roll/principal’s list information, information about the AP and University in the High School (UHS) opportunities, as well as descriptions of our Distance Learning (DL) and video conferencing (VAP) offerings.
The academic section, organized by department, provides specific information about the courses offered for students in grades 7-12.
Our intent in providing this updated guide is to support student and parent decision making regarding their child’s schedule to maximize their educational program. It is essential to plan and make thoughtful decisions about course selections. Therefore, take time to select alternative course options which can be substituted for a course that isn’t offered.
Duanesburg Jr./Sr. High School offers a supportive learning environment. Our students are dignified, driven, and disciplined. Our goal is to assure our learners are enrolled in rigorous courses, supporting their development of college and career readiness, while building critical thinking, problem solving, collaboration, and communication skills.
Communication is essential if our students are to be successful. Please do not hesitate to contact our counselors, Mrs. Goebel or Ms. Houghtaling, our teaching staff or me should you have any questions about your child’s educational program.
Duanesburg Jr./Sr. High School Principal
