Additional Courses
We encourage all students to widen their educational horizons by taking courses to those in addition to those offered at Toms River High School North. Many colleges offer summer workshops or credit courses to students who have completed Grades 9 and 10. In addition, students may select courses at colleges after school or on Saturdays during their senior year. Check with your counselor if you are interested.

Advanced Placement
Toms River North students who have demonstrated the ability to pursue college-level programs may enroll in courses classified as "Advanced Placement (AP)". The Educational Testing Service (ETS) of Princeton prepares Advanced Placement Tests and performs evaluations for a fee. The Toms River Regional District encourages student participation in these studies and pays the fees for Advanced Placement Testing, subject to the following conditions:

Career & College Information
Arrange through your counselor to utilize a computer, search reference books, VCR resources, catalogues and other tools available in the guidance office. Interest inventories are available as well as opportunities to meet with college representatives who visit the school.

Class Rank
A) Class rank is computed using the final grades, at the end of the 10th and 11th grades, as well as after the seventh semester (midway through the senior year).

B) Computation utilizes a "weighted" system:

Track I / AP Track II Track III
A+ 5.5 4.5 3.5
A 5.0 4.0 3.0
B+ 4.5 3.5 2.5
B 4.0 3.0 2.0
C+ 3.5 2.5 1.5
C 3.0 2.0 1.0
D 2.0 1.0 0.0
F 0.0 0.0 0.0

C) The student with the highest weighted academic average is number 1, second highest is number 2, etc.

D) Class rank does not include physical education or independent study.

E) The selection of valedictorian (number one in the graduation class) will be determined using the sixth semester rank at the end of the Junior year, plus the numerical weighted equivalent for each grade received during the first three marking periods of the Senior year (except physical education and independent study).

Credit Hours & Failure Makeup
It is district mandate to make up all failures in one of two ways.

  1. To attend summer school to make up the deficiency, or
  2. Repeat all required courses during the year following the course failure. This may require students to attend high school for five years in order to complete high school graduation requirements.

Additionally, no student will be permitted to take two required courses from the same academic discipline (example - two physical education courses) in the same year to make up for a previous failure. The only exception is during a student's senior year when a student may double up in one discipline.

Scheduling
During the spring of each year, students select their courses for the following year. Any change during the regular academic year is initiated through completion of the "Schedule Change Form" available in the guidance office. Schedule changes, other than track change, are discouraged due to the considerable time spent on the scheduling process and the negative impact to class size.

Student Grades
Final grades are a culmination of a full year's work - four quarters and a final examination. The best possible education Toms River High School North can give is being offered to you. Only YOU can make the most of it depending upon the effort you make each and every day.

Transcripts
Forms are available in the guidance office to request that your transcript be forwarded to another school, agency or organization. Since permission is required, transcripts will not be released without proper written authorization. Please allow at least five (5) working days to process a transcript.

Working Papers
Working papers are obtained through the guidance staff in the guidance office form 7:00 a.m. until 2:30 p.m. Students must present "Promise of Employment" paper, birth certificate, and physical exam by school or private physician.
