My daughter (a high school senior) is currently taking a class in forensics and she loves it.

Were I a high school senior again (and limiting it to courses that would be considered appropriate for a yeshivish setting — no archaeology, anthroplogy, etc.), I suppose you could include any of the following:
Forensic Science (as mentioned above)
A “fun” slant on statistics — for boys, for example, you could give a course on “Advanced Baseball Statistics.” For girls, I suppose, you’d need to find a different angle.
Astronomy (may not be possible depending on the amount of light pollution where you live — will also probably require some night time “lab” classes).

I have taught a law elective several times in a Bais Yakov high school. Topics in law, constitutional criminal procedure, that kind of thing. Every time I taught it I had a cross section of the school, freshmen to seniors. The girls really enjoy learning concepts and then arguing about how to apply them or what is right.
A public speaking class is also very useful.April 3, 2014 11:03 pm at 11:03 pm #1010602ultimateskierMember
my school is one of the only BY schools i know of which offers electives.
This years are pretty much:
-Ap Env’t science
-Advanced Computer Graphics
-Advanced Jewish History
blanking out on more but im a HUGE supporter of Jewish Electives- gives you a chance to learn Torah with people who actually want to!
