TigerPath 9th Grade Planning Tool
Over the past few years, we have been working on a diversified curriculum to connect with future education and employment. This initiative is called TigerPath. These academies are created with the idea of merging traditional education with hands-on experiences rooted in real-world workforce opportunities. Listed here are the elective courses available to 9th grade students. We strongly urge you to take electives from your TigerPath. Most importantly, when you are choosing an elective within TigerPath, we also recommend that you take one, both, or all three if they are offered.
Mathematics: (2 courses) Geometry, Algebra or CORE (these will be loaded for you)
Science: (2 courses): PS Chemistry and PS Physics (these will be loaded for you)
English: (2 courses): Eng 9A and Eng 9B (these will be loaded for you)
Social Studies: (1 course): US History 9 (this will be loaded for you)
