Classes & Departments

At NMHS, you can choose from a rich combination of academic and complementary courses.

  • Consider the courses required for graduation and think about your strengths and interests – also take the opportunity to explore new opportunities.
  • Ask your teacher about course outcomes. Develop an understanding of what is required for you to be successful in each course - reflect on exemplars and rubrics and choose sequences based on your abilities, interests and past successes.
  • Course Sequences - Courses numbered 10-1, 20-1, 20/30 and 30-1 are most challenging – they will require complex thinking/tasks necessary for university entrance (universities may accept some - 2 courses).  Courses numbered 10-2, 20-2, 30-2, 10-3, 20-3, 30-3, 14 or 24 are appropriate if you are planning on transitioning to college/technical programs and apprenticeships. Both sequences contribute to a High School Diploma. Courses numbered 10-4, 20-4, 30-4 are Knowledge and Employability courses and lead to a Certificate of High School Achievement.

Should you be experiencing growth and success in a subject area, there are opportunities for enrichment – you may also consider a more challenging course sequence or prepare to write the Advanced Placement exam.

  • Complementary Courses - Explore your interests in CTS, Global Studies, and Fine Arts through a variety of courses. These may lead to future careers or become lifelong passions.
  • Prerequisites - As part of your high school plan, identify the courses that have prerequisites; you must 9 achieve a minimum of 50% before you can proceed to the next level. For example, you must pass ELA 10-1 before you can proceed to 20-1. Always consider your next steps – what will be required to meet your entry requirements for post-secondary, apprenticeship or the world of work?

* Please note | course offerings may vary depending on enrolment, staff and facility considerations.
