PRINCIPAL’S MESSAGE College or work…What will I be doing after graduation? As you prepare to complete high school, this will be the biggest and most important question you will be asking yourself. The key to answering this question is planning and making wise choices as you register for classes. Talk to your parents. Talk with your counselors. Ask the teachers themselves what you could expect from taking their courses. The bottom line is to choose thoughtfully and carefully. You are planning for your future. Please make time to READ this catalog thoroughly and FOLLOW DIRECTIONS! This statement seems almost too simple but it is the secret to a successful registration for next year here at Hilo High. And with a good school year, every Viking will add another solid building block for a great and fulfilling future. SCHEDULING OF COURSES This course catalog will help plan your program of study at Hilo High School. The time spent planning will help you avoid many problems once school begins.

PLAN AHEAD    READ the course descriptions BEFORE selecting a subject to be sure it fits your needs and/or interests. CONSULT with teachers in specific subject areas for more detailed information. BALANCE your course selections. Allow yourself the freedom to take elective subjects each year - they are a valuable part of your total education. REMEMBER to make certain you have met the prerequisites for a particular course. ALTERNATE COURSES must be selected in case it is not possible to get into your other choices. BE SURE to take courses which will give you the best possible preparation for your future plans. Take advantage of the courses available to you.

Students who fail to return their registration forms will be scheduled by their counselors or the registrar with no option for change if they end up with courses that “were not asked for” or “they didn’t want or need.” A charge of $2.00 for another course catalog and $.50 for another registration form will be assessed.
