Cardinal Course Guide

2014 - 2015 Course Guide (pdf) 

The Cardinal Course Guide has been carefully prepared for the use of selecting classes at LHS. You will find a wide variety of course descriptions and special programs inside. A thoughtfully-designed schedule is the initial step toward having a successful year at Lincoln High School. 

Students and parents are asked to understand that the Lincoln staff (Administrators, Counselors, IB Coordinator and Teachers) will make every attempt possible to ensure that every student is offered the courses that they request on their forecasting sheet. The priority is to ensure that every student meets all PPS Diploma requirements, as well as the IB Diploma requirements when appropriate. School staffing decisions are based on the data collected from these student course selections. With this in mind, please understand that student schedule changes cannot be made over the summer/fall months unless the student has completed a course over the summer, a student was scheduled into a class that they did not forecast or it is discovered that a student was scheduled into a course without having met the course prerequisites.
