Bring proof of residency (rental agreement, mortgage agreement, utility bill) to that meeting. Registration forms will be provided at that time. Paperwork should be completely filled out and returned to Patty West, Enrollment Secretary, in the Counseling Center as soon as possible.

Courses offered vary from year to year and are described in the 2018 course catalog


Each year students at OHS register for their classes by completing the following:

Conduct a SPC (Student Parent Conference)
Attending Showcase
Discussing options with counselor (Junior Year one-on-one)

The subject selection process puts the student in charge of selecting classes to meet individual interests, outcomes and needs; therefore, class schedule changes should not be necessary except for graduation requirements.  Changing a schedule can be very difficult and multiple factors are involved: class size, availability, initial class request and other factors that must work around 1400 student schedules.   

By current grade level:  

Class of 2021 - 24 Credit Checklist 
9th grade subject selection sheet 
10th grade subject selection sheet 
11th grade subject selection sheet 

Should students need additional help, the appropriate counselor may be consulted. Email is best when reaching counselors during registration and/or contacting the Counseling Office for an appointment.  360-596-7004

Incoming freshmen are computer scheduled for their first year after completing the subject selection form.  8th grade registration dates are throughout March for OSD feeder schools.  

Necessary schedule changes should be handled with a counselor during the first ten class days of the first semester (first five days of second semester). Any withdrawal from a class after that time will result in the awarding of a withdrawal failure grade (WF) on the student's permanent record. (See Request to Add/Drop below)
