Particularly during registration, we often find incoming families have the same questions year to year, so we decided to publish this FAQ! The questions are mostly generated from our Question and Answer sessions.


Question: How do PE waivers work?

Answer: If you participate in an Ingraham sport, your coach needs to sign our PE waiver form LINKED HERE. If you participate in an outside sport, you use the same form but use the back to log 80 hours of practice and competition/performance.


Question: How do I participate in Ingraham athletics?

Answer: For the 21-22 School year, it’s best to follow their website! We are waiting on guidelines from our district and state as to what athletics will look like. This website has the paperwork you’ll need to register, and will also include tryouts and coach information when it’s available. Website here.


Question: I am interested in band. How do I get involved?

Answer: Each year, our performing arts department publishes their auditions and summer activities. See 21-22 information from our Band director here.


Question: Can freshman go off campus for lunch?

Answer: 9th graders are expected to stay on campus for lunch. 10th – 12th may go off campus but are expected to return to school in time for class to start. 


Question: Are there clubs at Ingraham?

Answer: Yes! We have numerous clubs and if you don’t see one on the list you want, you can start one! Most clubs meet at lunch, so everyone has the opportunity to take part. See the list of clubs here.


Question: Do I have the option for honors courses?

Answer: In 9th and 10th grade English, history and science courses, we are offering an integrated model. This means everyone in the course will have the opportunity to pursue honors credit within that class. Currently in math there is no honors options for Algebra 1.


Question: What do I need to do to prepare for IB?

Answer: Pass your classes! Our 9th and 10th grade courses will prepare you for taking IB courses in junior year. If you want to do the full diploma, you need to start a world language in 9th grade. Honors is not a requirement! View information about our IB Program here.


Question: Do I need to take health?

Answer: Due to updated district policy, procedure and expectation, all 9th graders should take health unless they are taking a full year of world language AND a full year of performing arts. If this is the case, you will take it in 10th grade when history is only one semester. For the 21-22 school year while we make this transition, your 9th grader may not get health in which they should expect to take it in 10th grade. The one exception to this would be if a 9th grader is taking full year of world language and full year of performing arts, and then they start the IB diploma in 10th grade, they would be exempt from this course.


Question: How many credits do I need to graduate?

Answer: You need 24 credits to graduate. And in a typical schedule, you earn 24 credits in your 4 years, so every class counts! Counselors will follow your requirements closely and ensure you are getting everything that you need but you should follow your requirements too! Find the graduation checklist here.


Question: I took high school courses in middle school, will I get credit?

Answer: You can! Per a new district policy, for 21-22 School year, 7th and 8th grade high school level courses will automatically get put onto your high school transcript. There is a form to move your 6th grade courses. For courses that are automatically put on, you will have until Junior year to take these off. Your IHS counselor can walk you through the procedure and talk through pros and cons as you get closer to graduation (no need to do this in 9th grade!).


Question: What does my first day look like?

Answer: In a typical year, we have the first day of school split in two pieces. The first piece is dedicated to 9th graders and Link Crew Leaders. 9th graders will be involved in some get-to-know-you activities, get a tour of the school, find your locker, etc! After the first half of the day, all students will come on campus for short periods in order to meet your teachers and get your syllabus.


Question: What do school counselors do?

Answer: We do a lot of things! We can help with problems you may be having with friends, teachers, or classes. We can help with your High School and Beyond Planning. We help with your schedule. We help with your college applications and write letters of recommendation! Any questions you have that we don’t have the answers to, we can (usually) point you in the right direction. We are excited to meet you!
