    In high school, students must pass 22 units of credit to graduate. They have to be in particular subjects. No matter what diploma students receive they still need the required amount of credits. The diploma students receive depends on the number of Regents Exams that they pass. (see pamphlet)You will take a science course in 9th grade. You may choose between Earth Science and Living Environment. These are both Regents science courses. They meet three out of four days. There are lab requirements in both of these courses and there is a Regents exam at the end of the year for both of these courses.

    All students are required to take physical education in 9th grade.
