Principal's Message and Introduction


This Program of Studies describes the many courses available for the 2017-2018 school year. We are proud of our diverse offerings and hope you will find this website helpful as you begin to chart your future. 

At Wellesley High School we have a long tradition of preparing young people for 
life as productive citizens. We aim as always to develop well-rounded, contributing citizens. As such, when making course selections, we encourage you to expose yourself to experiences and activities that will inspire you and help you to reach your fullest potential. Be sure to seek the wisdom of those around you who can guide you with your choices. Your counselors, teachers, administrators and most importantly, your parents have “been there” and know you well. Be sure to take advantage of their insights.

Remember, building the properly balanced schedule is one of the most important things you can do as a high school student. Challenge yourself to try new things and expand your horizons. Discover yourself and enjoy the journey! After all, this is what high school should be all about.

I wish you all the best for an exciting and productive 2017-2018 school year.

Jamie B. Chisum, Ed. D.
Principal, Wellesley High School
