Option II Application Process
Montgomery High School students are required to complete an application which must include an attached course syllabus/curriculum. The completed application must be given to the Montgomery High School Guidance Department and approved by the content area supervisor and school principal (or designee) PRIOR to enrolling in a course. The course must be offered by an accredited institution and must meet or exceed NJ Core Curriculum Standards. Such courses may not take the place of a course that is a required academic course (i.e. English 9-12, U.S. History I & II, etc.) for graduation; however, it may be taken for advancement (i.e. in math courses) only when approved by the content area supervisor. Any course taken by an MHS student without the prior approval of administration will NOT be granted course credits.

What goes into the review process?
The review consists of many factors including evaluation and comparison of the syllabus/curriculum (scope and sequence) to the MHS curriculum and the accreditation of the institution. All confirmations of approval will be e-mailed.
