This means that while there are certain courses required for graduation for all students, many of the subjects are elected by the student. To a large extent the courses selected determine the type of post-high school opportunities available to the student. The Somerville Board of Education mandates a minimum of 120 credits for graduation. Each student is required to carry a minimum of 35 credits per year to maximize his/her educational program.
