West Hempstead High School welcomed students in grade 8-11 along with their parents for a Curriculum Fair on Jan. 17. This event served as an opportunity to view course offerings and requirements for graduation and paths beyond high school.

Those in attendance were detailed to information on new courses, the registration process, college and career pathways, electives, AP requirements and graduation requirements. Also in attendance were 35 high school student volunteers that were willing to share details about the classes they enrolled in during their high school careers.

Assistant Principal Adam Hopkins delivered a comprehensive presentation in the auditorium regarding the curriculum offered throughout the district and high school. District alumni Chris Mistretta, son of Director of Physical Education, Health and Athletics Christopher Mistretta, was the evening’s guest speaker and shared his perspective on the importance of AP and college level courses.

“The Curriculum Fair had an encouraging turn out as students and parents are laying the groundwork for paths at West Hempstead High School and beyond,” said Principal James DeTommaso.
