NJ State Minimum Graduation RequirementsUPDATED 10/15/18: State of New Jersey Testing Requirements for Graduation
Somerville High School is a comprehensive high school with a single curriculum. 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.
* “Content equivalent” means courses or activities that include the same or equivalent knowledge and skills as those found in traditionally titled courses which are required for high school graduation and which are aligned with the Core Curriculum Content Standards.
