Creating Your Son’s Course Schedule. We will email your son’s math placement within three weeks of his math placement test. If we are not able to accommodate your son’s language preference (a rare occurrence), we will contact you over the summer.
Our Head of School (Mr. Joe Rhee, Middle School / Mr. Peter Fletcher, High School) will then build the rest of your son’s course schedule – and the school’s schedule – around his Math, Language, and Activity / Elective choices. His courses will generally follow our curriculum, as outlined on our website for High School or Middle School. Your son’s complete course schedule will be emailed to you by late July (or, if you enroll over the summer, it will be viewable in onCampus by mid-August).
High School Electives. In the high school there is a class period in the day devoted to elective course offerings. These electives are graded, for-credit courses. In August you will receive an email from our Head of High School, Mr. Fletcher, detailing the year’s offerings and a sign-up process for your son to choose his electives. We recommend you review these elective offerings with your son.
Middle School Clubs. Similar to the high school, there is a class period in the day devoted to clubs for the middle school. The only club that meets outside of school hours is our Robotics Team. These clubs are non-graded. You should sign up for these clubs here. You can find the total list of activities and their descriptions here.
Textbooks & Technology. Textbooks will be distributed during the first few days of school by each faculty member. All textbooks are the property of Northridge. Once received by your son, he will be responsible for the condition of his books. Your son will receive login information for the student laptop computers at Northridge at New Student Orientation.
OnCampus. This is a password-protected internet site that allows teachers and the administration to communicate information with students and parents such as grades, homework, and course syllabi. Your ID and Password used for the admissions process is the same for OnCampus. At New Student Orientation, your son will receive an activation code in order to access the system as well.
