Exploratory, Core, and Essential Courses
At FJHS, we have three different categories of courses for students to take in their schedules. First and foremost, the Core courses that a student takes are the required courses that are part of their “core” academic skills. The next category of courses are considered Essential courses and are also required as part of the student instructional sequence. Lastly, students are given the opportunity to select Exploratory courses of their preference to “explore” various interests and gain exposure to a variety of topics. The sixth grade Exploratory courses are NOT optional for students and are required.
The main difference between Core and Essentials courses are that the Essentials teachers are not apart of the Core academic team and instead teach a wider variety of students within the building. However, both are graded the same and are required in a student’s schedule. exploratory courses are up to student choice and are also graded using the M, P, or N performance level marks found in the FJHS Grading and Reporting Policy.
