'College in the Schools' psychology course to be taught at WHS
Sandra Marmesh, a Woodbury High School social studies teacher and former department chair, has been approved by the faculty of the University of Minnesota to teach "College in the Schools" psychology at Woodbury High School, beginning with the 2008-09 school year.
The College in the Schools program will allow students enrolled in Psychology A and B to receive both high school graduation credit and college credit for their coursework. Since psychology is a course needed for graduation from many colleges, the university credit received may be used by students entering college.
Woodbury High School has also made application for College in the Schools courses in world languages. Interviews for course instructors are coming up, and there may be options for college credit in those areas as well.
Students who have registered for psychology for the 2008-09 school year will be contacted to determine if they desire to be enrolled in the College in the Schools sections. Questions may be directed to Woodbury High School principal Linda Plante at (651) 768-4410.
