Graduation Requirements

  • Classes of 2019 and 2020

    23 credits required for graduation

    • English - 4 credits  (one credit required each year grades 9-12)
    • Mathematics - 3 credits
    • Social Studies - 3 credits
    • Science - 3 credits
    • Arts - 1 credit
    • Health and Fitness - 2 credits
    • Occupational Education - 1 credit
    • Electives - 6 credits

    Students are required to complete a high school and beyond plan.

    For the classes of 2019 and 2020, we applied for and received a waiver from Washington State to the new 24-credit graduation requirement. As a result, students in the classes of 2019 and 2020 only need 23 credits to graduate.

    For students who have worked toward a 24-credit requirement, this change to the 23-credit requirement will not affect previous decisions regarding their four-year plan of study. All credits earned to this point will continue to meet graduation requirements. This waiver provides our high schools time to prepare for the 24-credit requirement.
