Earn College Credits At KHS

Earn University of Washington English Composition Credits Without Ever Having To Leave Kelso High School.

English 131 and English 111 are open to interested and qualified juniors and seniors (juniors may take either one of these courses in lieu of taking LA 11). The successful completion of each course will provide Kelso students with 5 credits of college English composition that transfer to other colleges and universities across the country. Students will also receive dual credit through Kelso High School, satisfying local and state graduation requirements.  During this 2016-2017 school year, approximately 90 KHS juniors and seniors are taking advantage of this program and will receive 5 credits of college English composition (along with the enhanced reading and writing skills that accompany these classes)free of charge. Please take a few moments to read through the English 131 and 111 course prerequisites and descriptions. We would love to have you in either class if you are interested in challenging yourself and if you qualify. Sophomores confident of passing the SBA should sign up.

Luckily it is easy to export files from Drive to a computer or another non-district Google account. Here are directions on how you can do that.
