Middle School Graduation Requirements

Middle school students in grades 6­-8 are not on the credit system. They do not accumulate credits toward graduation from middle school to high school. They are, however, under certain restrictions as far as promotion is concerned. A middle school student is required to take and pass ALL “core” courses. Core courses are the subjects of Math, English, Science, and Social Studies. If a student fails two or more courses in one year, the student may have to repeat the year or they may have their enrollment rescinded.

High School Graduation Requirements

High school students in grades 9 through 12 work towards earning a specific number of graduation credits each year. Each course is worth one credit. Students must pass each course in order to obtain credit. These requirements were established in order to meet California’s minimum graduation requirements as well as match industry leading international schools in order to better prepare our students for entrance into respected colleges and universities.
