Taking more challenging classes and earning college credit is a boost to many high school students' future. The USD 460 school board approved new high school courses at their February 10 meeting. Hesston High School will be offering several credit and non-credit classes.
Statistics will be a dual credit course for three college credit hours with Hutchinson Community College taught by Mark Dahlsten. Principal Ty Rhodes said there may be fewer students enrolled in the college level Calculus class, as "Statistics probably meets more qualifications for programs kids might go into in college." The course covers topics such as analysis of single variable and bivariable data, probability distribution, normal probability distributions, and sampling distributions. The high school is waiting for HCC to choose text books for this class.
Another added course will be Culinary Arts 1, which is the next class to be taken after Culinary Essentials. It will focus on skills generally recognized as important in the field of culinary arts. Catering experiences may be included as well as observing those already in the field. It will be taught by Lynda Schroeder.
