Reminder to underclassman:
The X2 Portal is open now for students to select courses. Academic teachers have had their individual discussions with their students, and have recorded their course recommendations. A total of 40 credits is needed to complete the selection; therefore, students will also need to select electives. Counselors will continue to meet with each of their students individually to answer any questions and review students' choices up until April vacation. To get a description of the individual courses, students should refer to the Program of Studies which can be found on the DR website under "Guidance". Students, please do your best to make selections on your own while the Portal is open. 

Multicultural Night has been Cancelled

Thank you to all the volunteers and those who expressed interest in attending.


The X2 Portal is open for students to select courses, and will remain open until March 31st. 

  • Students should first exam which courses they have been recommended for, by logging in to X2.

  • Click on "My Info" and "requests" and students will find that teachers have recorded their recommendations. 
  • All students should have 40 credits. In most cases, all of your CORE subjects are in place, and electives will need to be selected.
  • Refer to your Course selection guides for your specific year of grad.
  • Use your Program of Studies 17-18 to have a better understanding to the elective course content.
  • Select electives, and then "alternative" electives (in case you are shut out of the elective enrollment)

  • Counselors will be meeting with each student individually to review the student's choices before the master schedule is developed.

  • The selection process WILL END at 2:00 P.M. on Friday, March 31st.

Attention Seniors:

Greetings Seniors, Parents and Guardians!

Once students have received college acceptance letters, the next step is to choose a college and figure out how to pay for it. And while this is an exciting time, it can also be overwhelming. MEFA (the Massachusetts Educational Financing Authority) is offering upcoming seminars on Paying the College Bill. This seminar is designed to help families examine and compare financial aid awards, calculate the balance due, develop a plan to pay the bill.

At this event, you can bring your financial aid award letters, and a MEFA representative can assist you in better understanding the 'bottom line' with your award.

MEFA Paying the College Bill seminars are currently scheduled in many towns, see:  for a list of locations and dates.
Good luck! - Mrs. Payne and Mrs. Donahue

The closest event is this Thursday in Taunton!  Please see the link above for more information!
