• PROGRAMMING AND SCHEDULING NOTESSyosset High School offers a broad curriculum designed to meet the needs and to satisfy the interests of its diverse student body. While every effort is made to schedule students with their first choice of courses, conflicts can occur because of the wide variety of offerings. To minimize potential problems, certain courses should be selected according to special procedures that are designed for the courses they need.

    1. SENIORS must choose electives in both English and social studies to satisfy graduation requirements. In both subject areas, alternate courses must be selected for first choice courses. If the first choice cannot be scheduled, the alternate will be substituted. Therefore, care should be given to the selection of alternates as well as first choice electives.

    2. JUNIORS and SENIORS must select an alternate course for their first choice physical education course.

    ANY STUDENT who has room for one alternate day course in his/her program besides physical education or science laboratory may choose any appropriate alternate day course. Courses will be scheduled on an R & W basis according to student enrollment and the resulting number of sections provided.

The following is a list of alternate day courses:

  • Art

  • Business

  • English

  • Human Ecology

  • Health

  • Mathematics

  • Music

  • Social Studies

  • Technology
