  • It is best for students to take electives that are within their grade level. 
  • Many students will consider additional Math courses as an elective. 

*The following are additional electives which students may take outside of the regular timetable. Because they are outside the timetable, they are in addition to the credits that most students will take in one year. These are usually scheduled at noon or after school. These courses are: Jazz Band, Choral Music, Musical Theatre, Vocal Jazz, Yearbook and Wind Ensemble.

Dakota Visual Arts students have created an Art in Nature Trail at the community Beliveau Forest. The intention is wellness and awareness. Having people come into Nature and Observe Art is good for the soul as well as witnessing student voice on a variety of environmental issues.
