Graduation Credit Requirement for college-bound students

It is highly recommended that college-bound students take a minimum of two years of a foreign language. This is the requirement for entrance into many colleges and universities. The Class of 2010 graduated all twenty students and all of them entered college in the fall. The class of 2011 had 12 out of 14 enter college while the class of 2012 had 21 out of 22 students going on to college. One student graduated early and entered college.
