COURSE SELECTION INCOMING FRESHMAN CLASS OF 2026

  • NEW TO WCSD? If you are a NEW student to the Washoe County School District, you must contact our Registrar, Amy McMullen (Amcmullen@washoeschools.net) to get enrolled.

    Current WCSD 8th graders that attend middle schools zoned for Reno High School (Swope, Clayton, Mt. Rose, and Pine) will view the PPT below and receive their blue course selection form in mid-February in their advisory class. Before you complete your course selection form, consult the course catalog (quick link on the RHS Counseling Website) to make sure you have the prerequisite for each course you plan to select.  Counselors welcome questions via email as we will be unable to accommodate individual meetings with students and parents.

    Students will individually meet with a counselor to review their COMPLETED course selection. If a student does not have their completed form when they meet with the counselor, the counselor will select their classes. Below are the dates the students meet with their counselor. 

    February 14th and 15th   Swope Middle School 

    February 16th                   Clayton Middle School 

    February 17th                   Pine Middle School  

    February  18th                  Mt. Rose
