Brockton High School has designed its academic course offerings with the central goal of equipping students with intellectual competence and critical thinking skills that will serve them throughout their adult lives.

In addition to core courses that include English, Mathematics, Science, Social Science, and Wellness/Physical Education, students take elective courses that suit their interests. Elective offerings include everything from Psychology to Theatrical Set Design, from Public Speaking to Piano. Creative expression is encouraged and celebrated inside our Fine Arts Building, which is home to a choral room, band room, a television studio, multiple art studios and our 1,600-seat auditorium. Students in the vocational program will work with their guidance counselor to determine which elective offerings would fit into their schedule.

Students may study Mandarin Chinese, Latin, and Spanish. Those with exceptional linguistic skills will be eligible to take Medical Interpretation courses in Portuguese, Spanish and French.
