The World Scholars Program at WHHS is restructuring to a program of study, which includes the Honors Directed Studies Immersion course (currently taught at WHHS this year) and further language study options in AP and IB, including the IB Bilingual Diploma and the IB Bilingual Career Diploma. Hall County students who are interested in this plan of study at WHHS, and who are not already zoned for WHHS, may apply for an early program of study transfer in January each year.
Rising 9th grade students who plan to participate in the immersion program of study during the 2021-2022 school year will enroll in the Honors Directed Studies (I) Immersion course. Ninth grade immersion courses in Science and Social Studies will not be offered in 2021-2022; instead, the Honors Directed Studies Immersion course will offer a broader, interest-based Spanish immersion experience, focused on interdisciplinary academic learning.
Note: Students who are in the i2 program may also have the opportunity to participate in the Spanish immersion program of study if their schedule and elective choices permit.
Currently enrolled WSP freshmen who will be sophomores in the 2021-2022 school year will participate in the Honors Directed Studies (II) Immersion Course. They will also have the flexibility to take AP courses, Dual Enrollment courses, or preparatory courses for the IB Programme, according to their individual academic needs and goals.
Directed Studies Description:
Gifted Directed Studies are academic courses designed to meet the needs of the most academically able and most highly motivated students. Directed Studies allow gifted and talented students to learn advanced academic content and skills, understand more about themselves and others, and explore areas of interest. Based upon the Autonomous Learner Model, students pursue group and individual projects based on their strengths and interests, as they build a community and culture of learning. Learning objectives of the directed study are developed jointly by the student, gifted program personnel, and department faculty at the high school. At WHHS, this course is taught in an immersion environment with WLM students and Native Speakers of Spanish.
