RHS Programs of Study
In compliance with Federal and State curriculum standards and research on successful educational strategies, Redlands High School has aligned its academic programs with career-technical application opportunities to create four separate “schools” within the overall school program. Next year’s students will have a “home base” on our campus in one of the following areas:
- The School of Arts and Industry
- The School of Enterprise
- The School of Professional Services
- The School of Public Action
Students are placed in a school by their request for electives.
In the past, students chose electives somewhat randomly, “sampling” various types of career/technical coursework. That practice is still an option. A better choice, however, would be for the student to choose a coordinated set of electives, designated by the California State Department of Education as a PROGRAM OF STUDY. These elective courses are sequenced and culminate in advanced classes that lead to certification and, in some cases, college credit for concurrent enrollment. A Program of Study can prepare a student for part-time employment at a higher wage during college study, and can qualify the student for college credit, just as Advanced Placement courses do.
