AP and Community College classes

All students who are registering for an AP course, or a community college course must fill out the contract for each one.  Please read the contracts carefully to understand the exciting opportunity and the requirements for taking these types of classes. 


Please find the AP Contract here


Please find the Community College Contract here.  


Hillsdale High School recognizes that our students lead busy lives.  They have work, athletic and family commitments as well as homework and other extra curricular activities.  Please consider carefully these commitments when deciding if 6 or 7 classes per year is right for your student.

The SMUHSD started a 7 period day many years ago to help students who need extra support and those 9th or 10th graders who want an elective in their school day.

Students who take 6 periods a year (60 credits) over the four years of high school (60 x 4 = 240 credits) and pass them all will have more than enough credits to graduate on time with their class.  The requirement for graduation is 220 credits.  A 7th class in any year is extra, for support or elective enrollment and not required to graduate.

Please understand that the school day is from 7:45 to 3:15pm and students need to be available during this time frame for classes even if they have fewer than 7 classes.
