Each year, between November-February, Mrs. Adolphson and Mrs. Mendez meet with all MRHS students to create a four-year plan, or edit an existing one. This ensures that students' existing credits are checked, and pending graduation requirements are factored into their plans. This also helps students adapt their plans to any new college and career goals. Graduation requirements are the foundation on the four-year planning process.
MRHS Graduation Requirements:*
English- 4 credits
Math- 3 credits (including Algebra I and Geometry)
Science- 2 credits
Social Studies- 2 credits (including US His/Gov or Civics** and Consumer Econ)
Driver's Ed, Health
Foreign Language OR Vocational Education OR Fine Art- 1 credit
Electives- 10 credits
Total needed: 23 credits
*These are the minimum requirements needed to graduate with a high school diploma. If you plan on going to college, you may need to take extra classes in order to be admitted. Refer to specific colleges' and universities' websites for more advanced admission requirements.
**You must pass both the federal and state constitution tests in US His/Gov or Civics to graduate. US His/Gov will no longer be offered after the 2016-17 school year, per changes in state graduation requirements. Freshman students beginning high school in 2016 (and after) will take Civics their junior year.
