Interim Superintendent's Message
Dear Parents and Guardians,
The 20172018 Queen Anne’s County Public Schools High School Program of Study booklet is intended to provide valuable information to allow students and parents to make important decisions and selections for a successful future. This guiding document has been designed to explain and provide a rich variety of challenging and rigorous choices available to each and every student in our school system. The additional demands of high school course work for students in the state of Maryland make the expectations for graduation more complex than in prior years. Therefore, in order to meet these demands, the Queen Anne’s County Public Schools offers complexity in course work, electives, internships, and other programs to diversify each high school experience for everyone. Students and parents/guardians are encouraged to work with their teachers, school counselors, and administrators to make decisions appropriate for achieving individual goals and outcomes. QACPS continues to explore ways to introduce more rigor, relevancy, diversity, specialization, and enrichment to all high school courses. All members of the Queen Anne’s County Public Schools urge students to take full advantage of the courses and programs offered in this booklet in order to reach their maximum potential and explore areas of interest that will lead to a rewarding career. Student learning and success is the district’s greatest achievement and the Queen Anne’s County Public Schools is committed to every child’s continued success and development. Find your passion and your future successful career will follow!
