In the area of fine arts, we encourage students to take courses in each of the four areas (visual art, instrumental music, choral music, and drama) although they are not required to do so.
Seniors are required to take a minimum of 6.00 academic credits, plus 0.25 senior seminar, 0.25 senior performance, and 0.50 service credits.
Advanced courses taken in Grades 7 and 8 do not satisfy graduation requirements, but may be used for class placement purposes.
