MY CHILD IN SCHOOL – Informed Parent, Involved Parent

GRADE 11

Grade 11 students should have a clearer idea of their individual career paths and post-secondary education options and should therefore choose their courses accordingly.

In Grade 11:

  • Science becomes an optional subject.
  • Depending on the school’s programming, there may be three course options offered in English Language Arts (ELA) and Mathematics.
  • In most cases, the Physical Education/Health Education course has a different format; students will now need to document their out-of-class physical activities.

It is possible that your child’s school schedule is more flexible in Grade 11. This allows for time to study and complete school assignments, to take extra courses, to work part time, or to pursue other activities.

To obtain a Manitoba high school diploma, students must accumulate a minimum of 30 credits. Students need to earn a credit in every compulsory course to be able to graduate from high school. In total there are 17 compulsory courses from Grade 9 to Grade 12 in the English Program and 16 in the Technology Education Program (see tables in English Program and Technology Education Program links). Students earn additional credits by completing optional courses.
