Hi Kayla. Electives are a good opportunity to take courses in something that you may be interested in. Have you thought about a foreign language, coding, or even a driver's education class? When selecting an elective, think about something that will benefit you. Often students take this as an opportunity to find a class that will yield an easy A. Many school districts even offer career-focused electives such as classes in automotive technology. I would encourage you to choose an elective that will help you obtain a new skill.

Greetings Kayla,

Honestly, this is a tough question to "answer", but hopefully giving you some advice and guidance will make it smoother for you in your decision of classes. Electives are a chance to explore or dive deeper into an area you think you have an interest in. In the last two years of high school, students start to home in on their interests, and electives can play a significant role in completing the picture of a student’s academic story.
In some cases, electives help fill in a student’s college application. Some use their elective slots to dive deeper into subjects beyond what is required to graduate. As students begin thinking about college, they can fill those elective slots with honors and Advanced Placement classes in their particular field of interest. For example, students interested in going into the medical profession might take advanced biology or anatomy.
The idea is to broaden your view and choices. Before choosing, you might sit down and list out things or topics that really interest you including possible jobs you might want to try. Then look at what the topics or jobs say are needed skills. This could lead you to narrow down the choices of what your school district offers.
