DPS High School Requirements (English & Español)

We recently received the lastest copies of Durham Public Schools' High School Requirements in English and Spanish.  It is easy to read and understand.  Check out the links below.

Many of you may have missed the addition of one social studies credit by the state of North Carolina for those starting high school in this 2012-2013 school year, which brings the number of social studies credits required from 3 to 4..  Students entering high school prior to this year are not required to complete this additional credit.  The state frequently tweaks high school requirements, but students are only responsible for requirements in the year they enter high school.

DPS, like many larger systems in NC, requires more credits than the state minimum.  Durham requires seven additional elective credits, which gives students more options and may better help prepare them for work or college.  Many folks ask about the fewer number of credits required for students at Durham School of the Arts (DSA).  This has to do with scheduling--other Durham High Schools use a block schedule, which allows you to take more courses in a year, and DSA uses a traditional schedule.
