Heights Campus Juniors/Seniors (New Course Offering)

Next year we are offering TWO sections of AP Economics for students who want a little challenge and are willing to do the “college level” work (and get graded on a 5-point scale). It is offered 3rd hour in the AM and 4th hour in the PM (perfect for students who have 3 AM classes and a 5th/6th hour CoOp or Dual Enrollment). If you think you might be interested, email Dr. Bayerl (bayerlj@dearbornschools.org) ASAP to see if we can make it work on your schedule. Course descriptions are below
