High School course information for both Bonney Lake and Sumner high schools are combined into one catalog. This catalog has been designed to provide you with the tools you need to make choices that will benefit you now and in the years to come. The catalog will help guide course selection and decisions.

English Math 7th Hour
All students must pass their English and Math classes as well as state testing (SBAC in English and Math) in order to graduate. This is a hurdle for some BLHS students. Failing classes and/or not passing state testing results in students replacing their Elective courses with remedial courses or courses designed to help them pass state testing. To help students avoid this and pass their courses & state testing, we are instituting a new program. We are calling it EM7, which stands for 7th hour English and Math Support Class. A 7th hour class is held after school, from 2:30 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. Monday through Thursday. EM7 will run from December 16, 2015 though January 28, 2016.
- 7th hour goes from 2:30 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. Monday through Thursday.
- English Support Class will run every Monday and Wednesday
- Math Support Class will run every Tuesday and Thursday.
- There will be two certificated teachers in the program to assist students.
- A letter will be sent home on December 11 notifying students & parents if they are in EM7
- Students will also be notified in class on December 14
This is not an "optional" program. I, as well as the rest of the BLHS staff, am dedicated to the success of every student. We will do our part. Students need to do theirs. A student is able to earn their way out of EM7 by getting their grade up to a 70% or better.
We have an activity bus, which leaves BLHS at 4:15 p.m. to take students home
BLHS has a an Activity Bus that runs Monday through Thursday. It leaves the high school at approximately 4:15 p.m.
We also have an Assessment/Support Center, staffed with certified teacher after school assist students. Students may (and should) stay after school and get all the support they need to be successful in school.
