  • What time should I arrive for graduation?

    Posted by:

    Due to the size of the graduating class, it is recommended that you arrive early.  Doors open one hour prior to the ceremony.  Although the ticket guarantees entry to the arena, it does not guarantee a seat.

Exam Exception Policy

  • Seniors will be able to exempt exams if they meet the following criteria in a course:

    1. Must have an 80 or above average
    2. Must have no more than three absences (excused or unexcused) prior to exam day (college visits count toward absences)
    3. Must have no suspensions (ISS or OSS) during that semester

    Other critical elements of the policy:

    1. State exams (EOC, NCFE, VOCAT) cannot be exempted
    2. Exemption is optional (qualifying students may choose to take an exam; the exam grade will be used only if it improves the student's overall grade in the course)

    AP Exams:

    1. Students in AP courses must take either the AP exam or the teacher-made exam (no exemptions)
    2. If a student fails to take the exam of their choosing (AP exam or teacher-made), a grade of "0" will be calculated for the missed exam and averaged into the final course grade (counts 25%)
