Need an Elective?

Need+an+Elective%3F

Carolina Forest High School, as we know, is colossal! Attending the school, many students tend to forget the wide variety of classes here. There are electives that connect with most students’ interest.  The following classes tend to be a bit more hands-on that some of the other great choices:

Forensic ScienceIf you enjoy “Criminal Minds” or “Breaking Bad,” this elective is for you. This class often focuses on analyzing pieces of evidence found at crime scenes that can be used to solve cases in court. In the past, students have participated in Murder Mystery simulations where they would go around the school to interview individuals “involved in the crime.”

Ceramics:  This is an elective devoted to pottery! In Ceramics, students are able to spend the block forming clay into things like pots, mini buildings, and other fun structures. Additionally, a student signed up for this is able to learn fundamental art skills such as painting, design, and sculpturing. 

Madison Aherne, a senior actively taking the class, stated, “It’s a very different and expressive form of art while also being super therapeutic.”

Competitive Team Sports:  In this active PE elective, students use teamwork in team-heavy sports like softball, badminton, basketball, or ultimate frisbee. This is an easy class to make friends in as you are always interacting with others. Not only are students boosting their cardiovascular fitness and overall health, they are also building friendships in the process!

The Horticulture Classes:  Have a green thumb? Well, many are surprised to find we have a greenhouse here on campus! In these classes, students obtain skills as well as the knowledge to establish, maintain, and manage “green industry” enterprises. Participants get into gardening and nursing plants, which is awesome for those interested in agriculture, flowers, or anything horticulture-related. Students who strive in these classes very often participate in Future Farmers of America(FFA) activities and events.

Sculpture:  In Sculpture, students get to create their very own personal digital portfolio where they’ll keep all of their works. Teachers encourage students to obtain a sketchbook to create plans for each project they work on in class, which teaches them to be able to design complex structures of all kinds and execute them thoroughly. Like Ceramics, students get to play with all types of modeling materials to sculpt creative pieces and unleash your inner artist! 

Adaptive PE:  Adaptive PE is one of our newest additions to the Forest! In this elective, students of general education will be paired with classmates who have physical, cognitive, emotional, or behavioral challenges that hinder their abilities to grasp the benefits of being active in regular physical education. Students will be able to gain leadership skills through this role, and everyone who partakes in the elective gets to experience fun physical activities and games. This class is especially beneficial to those who want to be teachers or coaches. 

Theatre Workshop:  Are you good with your hands? In Theatre Workshop, students are tasked to be a builder for the musical or any performing arts production sets here at the school, which are typically high-run and full of energy with a plethora of people coming all around Myrtle Beach to see them!  Students learn to use multiple tools and techniques to build specific set pieces and carry out designs.

“Some schools put in exorbitant amounts of money and rental units for their shows, but everything you see on stage in any of our productions was touched by the hands of a student,” shares Theater Workshop teacher Gregg Buck, who is the set producer.
