High School Course Catalog
Introduction & Index
As part of its mission and strategic direction, the Glendale Unified School District is committed to providing students with instructional programs and courses that are aligned with rigorous state, national and international academic standards. Courses that have been approved have gone through a review process that ensures that content matches or exceeds the standard for the academic discipline. In addition, courses that lead to admission in the UC or Cal State system have been approved by those agencies.
This web-based version of the printed course catalog will be maintained and updated yearly for easy reference. It should be used to assist the student and their family through the high school years to help plan the path to graduation, prepare for post-high school options, as well as making registration decisions each semester.

The catalog is organized by academic department, with special programs or interdepartmental offerings being listed separately.The following information is listed for each course:
- The number of credits (five per semester)

- The recommended prerequisites, if any
