Multiple Academic Pathways to Success (MAPS)


MAPS is an academic program at DHS in which students take elective classes with the intention of learning more about a potential career pathway. MAPS students may complete core classes at any level of rigor they choose (regular, honors, Advanced Placement, International Baccalaureate) to accompany the elective choices from their MAPS pathway. 

Students who complete any MAPS pathway will also be preparing for college and career goals. In order to complete the program, students must take the Career Prep course in the 9th grade and three additional MAPS electives. We have three MAPS Academies - each with multiple pathways to choose. The three required courses are listed below for each pathway.
