Course Information

Program of Studies and Department Flyers

Dear Students,


On behalf of the faculty and staff at Fitch High School, it is my pleasure to present you with the Fitch High School Program of Studies. We are proud of our course offerings and we believe that the variety of courses offered at Fitch High School meets the needs of every student. Selecting an appropriate and challenging program of study is the highest priority at this time in your life.

An edition of the Association for Superintendents and Curriculum Development Education Update contained an article, which began, "High school is a time for dreaming big and hatching plans for the "real world" after graduation.” But to make those dreams and plans a reality, students must also view high school as a unique opportunity to acquire the skills and knowledge – including the self-knowledge – that can lay the groundwork for later learning and promising careers.” Acquiring 21st century skills is valuable to you as you "achieve more" in the years after high school.
This Program of Studies is a resource, and it will assist you in your pursuit of your high school diploma and your life’s goals. Take the most challenging courses offered! We offer honors, Advanced Placement and International Baccalaureate courses. The time and effort you spend in higher level courses will pay dividends when you graduate. Your goals and dreams may change, however, success in challenging and exciting courses will allow you to follow every future dream. Share the Program of Studies with your parents, and/or guardians as you plan together for your high school years and beyond. Review the course selections carefully and make choices that will allow you to develop all of your talents and skills.
Remember that Fitch High School has dedicated and committed teachers, counselors and administrators who are available to assist you in the course selection process.
Have a great school year!
Mr. Matthew Brown
Principal, Fitch High School

MYP and World Language

In grade 6, MYP students experience a world language carousel.  After that, students choose a world language to study over the course of their remaining MYP experience (through 10th grade).  The IB MYP guidance encourages students to stick with the language they choose for 7th grade, all the way through senior year of high school.  All MYP students, except those who have an IEP or 504 that precludes studying a world language, must be offered the opportunity to study a world language as part of the 8 core MYP subjects at GMS and the 6 core MYP subjects at FHS.
