ReadingWritingMathScience 2017Yes STATE TESTING REQS
Credits for SHS*Credits for College ENGLISH English teachers will make placement recommendations based on SRI scores and grades in May. Students may challenge for rigor at their own discretion. * For graduation, students do not have to necessarily have freshman, sophomore, and junior English. While that is ideal, a senior who is missing one of these classes, but makes it up with extra senior English electives will be alright.
Algebra*Geometry3 rd Year of Math ** MATH Math will be batch loaded by math teacher recommendation in May. *Some students who took Algebra prior to 9 th grade may not have Algebra on their transcript. In this case, if the student has taken an additional year of math beyond Algebra 2 (typically pre-calc), they will have met the state math requirement. If not, they will need to go to their previous school and request that the credit be added to their transcript. ** Algebra 2 or Money Talks will count as a 3 rd year of math. Please remind students that most 4-year universities will not accept Money Talks as math credit. Students planning on attending a 4-year college will need a 4 th credit of math.
Lab Science*Science SCIENCE *All incoming sophomores should take a year of biology to prepare them for the Biology EOC. If a student does not pass their biology class, they do not necessarily have to recover biology. The state requires a credit of lab science, but it is not biology specific. NEW – Agricultural Biology (meets state bio standards) College bound students will want to take a full year of either Chemistry or Physics.
