Elective Course Request Process

Course requests for the upcoming year are made through our student information system, Infinite Campus, each Winter. 

Note Regarding Electives

Students and parents will need to request primary AND alternate electives. Please read course descriptions before making your selection. We do our very best to get students their primary choices. With that being said, not every student will get their primary elective selections. Please select three alternate electives that your student is interested in taking. Those who do not select any alternate electives are signaling that they are open to any/all electives that PMS offers.

Elective Change Request Week

Elective change requests are accepted the second week of each semester (August and January). We want students to attend their elective course for a week before deciding if they wish to request a change.

Students can return signed forms to the office, no emails please. Changes can be made if there is space available in the elective they are seeking to add. Changes may affect placement of other courses. We seek to keep students with their same academic teachers all year. There is a strong possibility that changes cannot be reversed once completed.

Elective Change Request Week is a time for students to reconsider elective offerings only. Requests for specific teachers or alternate class periods are not accepted. We believe that every student has a unique combination of gifts and talents. When discovered, developed and given back to the world, those talents will provide that student with a sense of accomplishment and personal worth. The role of the Counselor is to help and encourage each student to discover his/her own personal strengths in the classroom.
