All Glendora High School students will take the California High School Exit Exam (CAHSEE) in February of their 10th grade year. This exam is a graduation requirement. Students need to pass both the English Language Arts and Math portion of this exam to receive a diploma. Information regarding the material covered in this exam can be found at http://www.cde.ca.gov/ta/tg/hs/.
If your student does not pass the exam during his/her 10th grade year, they will be placed in a CAHSEE intervention class during their 11th or 12th grade year. The purpose of this course is to work on skills necessary for the exam in a more focused environment. Students will have mulitple opportunities to take this exam during their 11th and 12th grade year.
