Academic Plan Meetings for Students: March  | counselor@gisthailand.org
Our Academic Counselors are preparing for next school year! 

Students in Grade 9 will be called in to visit with their academic counselor about post-high school goals, future academic plans, and classes that should be taken next school year to meet these goals and to ensure graduation from GIS. A proposed schedule of classes will be created and recorded on the student’s 4-year Academic Plan document in Google Classroom. It is highly recommended that students and parents refer to this Plan when choosing classes for the next school year. 

Grade 8 students will have a class meeting and receive a customized handout that shows them what Grade 9 elective classes will fulfill their matriculation requirements; use this when choosing classes for the next school year. 

More information about course selection, including the newly updated Academic Program Handbook, (for all Secondary students) is still to come!
