My student needs to get into a competitive college. Will this change hurt their chances?
No, colleges do not penalize students for not taking classes that do not exist at their school. Colleges will see that SHHS requires all students to take Integrated 1 as freshman and that will not be held against them. All students will still have a pathway to get to both Calculus and AP Statistics if they choose. We are not removing pathways; we are removing barriers.
