In order to meet Regents graduation requirements, students must earn at least three (3) credits of mathematics. Students entering the ninth grade will be placed in a course according to the degree of success they obtained in 8th grade.
Students may be placed in Honors Math courses if they maintain a grade of 90 or above for all four quarters in a previous math course and receive a 90 or above on the regents. Once in the honors math course, students must maintain an average of 85 or above and receive an 85 or above on the regents to continue on to the next honors course.
