Course Schedule Options

Course Schedule Options

Based on feedback from students and families, we have developed an additional course schedule option for next year’s 12th-grade students in the marine science pathway.

We will add a new course, Intro to Business Communications, taught by an MHS teacher on our campus. This class provides career and technical education (CTE) credit and also fulfills students’ English language arts (ELA) credit requirement.

The Business Communications course will be open to students in 11th and 12th grades. 

Seniors who choose this course will attend class in the morning on our high school campus three days per week. They will receive support from MHS staff with their mastery transcript and will participate in Leave to Learn during the school day. They will continue to study at PSSC in the afternoons. 

Seniors in the marine science pathway have two options:


Option 1: Highline College campus

Option 2: MHS campus

Morning block

  • Marine science courses at Highline College and MaST Center
  • Classes with MHS cohort
  • College credit
