A normal course load for a school year is six (6) courses per semester or 60 credits a year. Students must pass math, science, foreign language, and elective courses with a grade of "C" or better to progress in that particular academic sequence.
Students who retake a course they have already passed will not receive credit twice, unless the course is designated MBRFC (May Be Repeated For Credit).
A one-period course for one semester (18 weeks) is equivalent to five (5) high school credits.
A one-period course for a school year (36 weeks) is equivalent to ten (10) high school credits.
