You are expected to make course decisions keeping in mind graduation requirements, your interests, and your educational goals for after high school. College credit options are available in both core academic and career and technical courses in all of our high schools. The following educational opportunities are provided to Edmonds School District students to meet individual academic needs:
- Students that want to do FULL TIME online learning (no classes at MTHS) must inform the MTHS Registrar and then transfer to Edmonds eLearning Academy. These students will no longer be a student at MTHS.
- Students that want to do PART TIME online learning (most classes still at MTHS) must complete the enrollment form in addition to the MTHS eLearning Course Request Form.
Any questions regarding eLearning must be directed to Edmonds eLearning Academy.
The Edmonds School District will be offering the PSAT/NMSQT assessment to all interested rising Juniors in the class of 2025 at their high school during late October 2023. The PSAT/NMSQT is a standardized test provided via computer through the College Board which measures the knowledge and skills in reading, writing and math students learn in the classroom - the same knowledge and skills that students need to succeed in college and career. The PSAT/NMSQT provides students excellent practice for the SAT as well as feedback regarding their progress on the road to college. In addition, the PSAT/NMSQT connects students to more than $300 million in scholarships, including the National Merit® Scholarship Program.
Registration and Payment
Students will need to register for the October PSAT/NMSQT at their high school in early September when they return to school in the fall. The cost for the PSAT is estimated to be $18 which students will pay at their school when they register. Those students who qualify for Free/Reduced Price Lunch and register for the PSAT/NMSQT will have their testing fee waived. More detailed information about registration and payment will be coming in early September.
If you have a documented disability, you might be eligible for testing accommodations which may include extended time, extra and extended breaks, and reading and seeing accommodations. Accommodations for the PSAT/NMSQT must be approved by the College Board’s Services for Students with Disabilities (SSD), and students/families seeking accommodations for the PSAT/NMSQT must submit their requests directly to the College Board SSD program.
If you qualify and wish to request accommodations, please refer to the instructions on the College How to Request Accommodations website. If you need assistance with this process, please contact your high school’s main office before June 26th and they will connect you with someone at the school who can help you. If you need to submit your request over the summer, please refer to the instructions for Requesting Without Going Through the School link on the College Board website.
All accommodation requests and required documentation for PSAT/NMSQT must be received by the College Board SSD by September 5th, 2023. However, since College Board SSD reviews every request and its accompanying documentation thoroughly, processing can take up to seven weeks. Consequently, it is strongly recommended that those seeking accommodations submit their documentation and requests to the College Board SSD as soon as possible.

All Summer School information is posted on the district Summer School page.
Summer school is provided at the district level and details are provided on the district website -- including dates, location, and costs (if any). Questions about summer school must be directed to summerschool@edmonds.
There are three types of Summer School courses:
- Credit Recovery - This is for students that failed a course. This helps students retrieve credits and get back on track for graduation.
- Grade Improvement - For students that earned a C- or below, they can retake the exact same class for Grade Improvement.
- New Credit ("Get Ahead") - For students that want to take a class that they have not yet attempted. The most common class for this is PE. Important: Please note that classes for next year are extremely full and there will not be opportunities to request schedule changes for next fall. Therefore, it is not recommended that students enroll in new credit summer school for a class that they signed up for in the fall. Students will not be able to switch out of the course and will likely end up having to retake the course.
