Campus provides students with several advanced math courses, but some students have enrolled in Calculus 3 at Collin College. Calculus 3 builds on topics from Calculus BC, but the course will also introduce new and more advanced topics.

With a few weeks still left in the first semester of the 2023-24 school year, students across the district are beginning to fill out course cards for the 2024-25 school year, with Frisco ISD offering several new courses including AP Pre-Calculus and Professional Standards of Agribusiness. 

“Course requests are used by the district to make decisions that affect teacher hires and the building of a campus’ master schedule, so the process must start early in order to prepare,” counselor Kelli Chandler said. “Classes may be closed due to low student interest. If there is a class that a student really wants to take, we encourage him or her to include it on the student course request.”

The up-and-coming 2024-25 courses include:

Pharmacology:

  • Expands reach beyond the pharmacology dual credit course with this non-dual credit offering
  • Allows students to study how natural and chemical agents affect body systems
  • To close out the course, students take a pharmacy technician certification

Practicum in Floriculture and Horticulture

  • Unpaid or paid capstone experience for students interested in floriculture or horticulture
  • Supervised experience ranges from employment to internships
  • Offered at the CTE Center

Professional Standards of Agribusiness

  • Focuses on leadership, communication, and problem solving in agribusiness
  • Helps keep agriculture students under one umbrella throughout high school
  • Satisfies agriculture course requirement for students interested in participating in agriculture or FFA, and also satisfied speech requirement

AP Precalculus

  • Prepares students for college level math and science courses
  • Replacing Advanced Precalculus, and has a 6.0 weight for GPA
