To the Students of Brewer High School:
Each spring, students participate in one of the most important parts of planning for their futures. This important component is known as The Course Selection Request process. This process can play a very critical role in determining your level of success. As you consider the courses available to you, it is imperative that you involve your teachers, guidance counselors, and parents.
Brewer High School has a rich and proud tradition of academic excellence. We are very pleased with the number and variety of course offerings that we are able to make available to our students. Of course, many of our courses have prerequisites. Prerequisites may include the following:
1) Being in a specific grade level (Sophomore, Junior, or Senior),
2) Earning a certain grade in a previous course,
3) Teacher recommendation.
Every effort is made by the administration and guidance staff to honor student’s specific requests. However, all schedules have certain core requirements that must be included and electives are secondary to those core classes.
Registration for rising 9th graders is handled in a similar manner. Course requests are made by these students in the spring of their 8th grade year with the assistance of their parents, guidance counselors, and teachers. The high school guidance staff will process these requests as quickly as possible. It is important to note that rising 9th graders who request Honors level classes will need to meet certain prerequisites. These include NWEA scores and minimum grade requirements.

Hard copy versions are available in the BHS library and in English classrooms. They are also available at each of the middle schools.
Brewer High School recognizes that in order for students to be successful, there needs to be a spirit of cooperation and effort between the school, the parents, and the students. When all three parties take ownership of a student’s future, there really is no limit to what a student can achieve.
