At MMHS we offer hundreds of courses -- in the traditional academic disciplines and in our valued elective programs. There are courses at different levels including advanced placement programs. In addition, there are four alternative programs -- dual enrollment, career pathways, some with certification programs-- these enable us to address the needs of all of our students.
The program of studies represents the menu of course and program offerings. Your responsibility is to choose the most appropriate and challenging program for you. I encourage you to read the catalog carefully and discuss it with your teachers, your counselor, and your parents—all to ensure that you make the best selections you can.

Honors Courses [H]
In order for students to be eligible to take honors courses they must obtain a 90 or better in the previous college prep course for that subject. Students need to maintain at least an 80 average in the previous specific honors course in order to be considered for the next level honors course.
College Prep [CP]
Open to all students who demonstrate the ability to complete work designed to prepare a student for entrance into a two or four year college program. The MM/HS curriculum revision committee determined that in every subject area there is a set of power standards from the MA curriculum frameworks that all students are expected to master.
|A+ = 97 - 100||A = 93 - 96||A- = 90 - 92|
|B+ = 87 - 89||B = 83 - 86||B- = 80 - 82|
|C+ = 77 - 79||C = 73 - 76||C- = 70 - 72|
|D+ = 67 - 69||D = 63 - 66||D- = 60 - 62|
I = Incomplete WP = withdrew passing WF = withdrew failing
