William Tennent HS will be administering mid-term and final exams on January 22, 25, 27 and 28. Here is a detailed mid-term exam schedule. Each of these dates will be a full school day for you, either in person or virtually. If you attend Middle Bucks Institute of Technology (MBIT), you will attend your typical MBIT schedule on these testing dates. Additionally, please know that the mid-term exams mark the end of the first semester.
WTHS will be administering the PSAT/NMQST Test in person on Tuesday, January 26, 2021. All Grade 10 students and registered test-taking Grade 11 students will take the PSATs in person at WTHS. These students will report to WTHS at the regular time and will be dismissed early after the test.
All non test-taking students will have a virtual, asynchronous work day. Grade 10 Students and registered test taking Grade 11 students who also attend Middle Bucks Institute of Technology (MBIT) will attend WTHS on these testing dates instead. MBIT has been notified and these absences will be excused. For more information please see this letter.
The time is approaching for students to begin selecting courses for the 2021-22 school year. You and your child can review our Panther Pathways Program of Studies in order to learn about available course options for next year. Additionally, our electives are listed by Pathway and Department here. Our teachers have also created some materials containing information about their departmental elective courses which can be found here. Over the next few weeks, your child will be recommended for courses by our teachers and will have the opportunity to choose elective classes. For more information, please be sure to attend our Virtual Course Selection Night on January 21, 2021 from 7:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m. The link to our virtual meeting and presentation can be found here. Should you have any questions regarding course selection, please reach out to your child’s counselor for further information.
