Course Catalog

  • The course catalog is designed to assist students and parents by providing an overview of District courses as well as information about academic policies. The Hanford Joint Union High School District is composed of seven schools: Hanford High School (HHS), Hanford West High School (HWHS), Sierra Pacific High School (SPHS), Earl F. Johnson Continuation High School (EFJ), Hanford Community Day School (CDS), Hanford Online Charter School (HOC) and Hanford Adult School (HAS). In addition to the core college-prep curriculum and a variety of electives, HHS, HWHS, and SPHS offer a variety of extracurricular programs including athletics, band, choral, theater, yearbook, newspapers, and clubs. EFJ serves students in grades 11-12.

    Students work with staff to create individualized instructional plans based on needs, goals and abilities. HAS serves students 18 and older, providing the opportunity to earn a diploma and receive vocational training. A regular high school schedule includes seven classes (35 credits) per semester. Freshmen enroll in English, Math, and Science courses based on a placement rubric. All freshmen are also required to take Physical Education. Other course choices should be based on goals and interests. Counselors can help you decide which courses are right for you. 

    The course catalog is updated every winter in time for our incoming freshmen registration season. Check out the course catalogs below and if you have any questions, please call the Educational Services office at 559-583-5901 ext. 3118 or
