Senior Programming

The THHS Senior Year: The Bridge Year

As described on The Bridge Year page, the Senior Year at Townsend Harris High School is a sometimes complicated year where the students are straddling two “worlds” at the same time: high school and college.

Each student’s senior program is a puzzle with pieces shaped by different institutions – the NYC Department of Education, THHS, and Queens College - including considerations of their specific requirements, class / time schedules, and course availability, as well as each student’s personal goals and extra-curricular activities.

The Senior Program

Seven courses are required to be taken each semester:

Fall Semester

Humanities Colloquium
Participatory Democracy
Physical Education
High School Elective #1
High School Elective #2
High School Elective #3
One Queens College Elective  *

Spring Semester

Humanities Colloquium
Economics
Physical Education
High School Elective #1
High School Elective #2
High School Elective #3
One Queens College Elective *

* This additional class may be an appropriate high school elective as determined in consultation with the student’s guidance counselor.  If a student has not met the high school graduation requirements, these must be fulfilled in the senior year in lieu of college or high school electives.

Important:

The school day for seniors is from 7:30am - 3:05pm.  Students will have periods of free time during the day for studying.  As in the underclass years, a senior’s class schedule cannot be adjusted for non-academic reasons.

All programs at both Townsend Harris High School and Queens College may be affected by budgetary constraints of which we are not aware of at this time.
