9-12 Promotion Policy

It is our goal to have all PCS students earn the necessary credits for graduation within four years and to participate in the graduation ceremony with their classmates.With the imposition of increased testing and course requirements from the State Ed., it is very important for students and parents to understand the graduation requirements and for students to stay on track for graduation everyyear.That means if your child fails a course, he/she should attend summer school right away to make up any lost credit. 

In order to promote to the next grade, students must achieve the following:

  • Grade 9 to Grade 10 = 5 credits including English 9 and Global 9
  • Grade 10 to Grade 11 = 10 credits including English 10 and Global 10
  • Grade 11 to Grade 12 = 15 credits including 3 yrs of English, 3 yrs of Social Studies, 1 math and 1 Science
  • Grade 12 to Graduation = 23 credits including requirements listed above
