NSHS College Remedial Requirement

To receive a high school diploma from NSHS, students must meet the college remedial requirements to graduate from NSHS. Remediation fulfillment is the completion of Math 096 or 097 and English 098 with a C or better (excluding C-). No diploma will be given until all requirements are fulfilled. Students are only allowed to participate in the graduation ceremony when all NSHS graduation requirements are met.

Low Level College Remedial Courses – Math 091 and Math 093 only count for high school elective credit and do not count for high school math credit. NSHS administration has serious concerns over the graduation risk of students enrolling in the school with these low level remedial needs. If students choose to attend under these severe risks, it is up to them to be committed to take the opportunity and work to graduate. NSHS has no authority over the classes that the respective colleges offer or where the student qualifies for each college on the placement exams. Classes are not guaranteed to be available.

Students and parents/guardians have been made aware of these higher graduation requirements to receive a diploma from NSHS and are aware that they may transfer to another school should they disagree with the NSHS standards. Students will not receive high school credit for taking classes lower than the ones already passed. For example: A student who has passed into Math 124 will not get credit for taking Math 096 in subsequent semesters. SAT/ACT test scores may be used for math or English placement in college and high school graduation requirement.
