1. Community Resources (CR)
Community High course work extends beyond the walls of our historic building. Students study and learn through direct experiences in community settings appropriate to their needs and interests. We offer and monitor over 600 courses through our Community Resources (CR) department. Students earn 0.25-1.0 units of academic credit for each course.
2. Foundation of Science (FOS)
A course unique to Community High is Foundations of Science (FOS). This three-year sequence in laboratory science, including all of the natural sciences, requires original research, extensive use of technology and a team approach to learning. The FOS sequence is at least equivalent to Earth Science, Biology, and Chemistry in a more traditional curriculum. FOS is based on guidelines of the National Science Foundation.
3. Independent Study (IS)
Independent Study contracts may be elected for credit by CHS students. Evaluation is based on performance and skill achievement. These courses are taught by certified Ann Arbor Public School teachers.
4. AP or AC? No!
CHS does not offer Advanced Placement (AP) or Accelerated (AC) courses. Our multi-age classes allow students to move ahead in their studies according to their abilities. We also encourage students to take actual college classes (CC) to challenge themselves. Some students opt to take AP classes and exams at the district's traditional schools.
5. College Courses (CC)
College Courses indicates a college course for work taken at the college or university level and earning high school credit. These classes are typically taken at the University of Michigan, Eastern Michigan University, or Washtenaw Community College. These grades are not computed into GPA.
6. Transfer In (TI)
Transfer In indicates course-work which has been transferred into Community High. These course grades are not computed into GPA.
