In order to be promoted to the next grade a student must pass 4 academic subjects or 3 academic subjects and have a passing average in the Unified Arts blocks. One of the subjects passed must be Reading or English.

If your student is in danger of failing 2 or more subjects for the year, it is essential that your student make an appointment with his/ her guidance counselor to develop an academic intervention plan. Parents and students should meet with team teachers as well.


Students may be retained if they fail to meet the standards for promotion. Retentions decisions are made by the teachers, the Principal and the Guidance Counselors in early June.
