The High School Experience

  • Jordan high school has a seven-period day structure with two semesters each school year. A one credit course is earned by completing a single class over two semesters. Some elective courses are only one semester in length and earn .5 credit.

    Our high school provides more than 100 courses and electives, which are outlined in the Registration Guide. To graduate, students must pass all required courses and earn 24 total credits. 

    Grading is a 4.0 scale, with weighted grades awarded to students who earn "C" or better in selected advanced courses. In addition, Jordan High School offers Advanced Placement, College In the Schools (CIS), Concurrent Enrollment (CE), and Articulated Credit (AC) courses. JHS offers 66 college credits through specific courses, which allows students to  earn college credit without ever leaving the high school campus.
