Academic Policies Related to Scheduling & Graduation
- Advanced Diploma candidates should consider taking their “additional core” class as a third year of Foreign Language to fulfill admission requirements at some colleges. Core classes are considered to be Math, English, Science, Social Science and Foreign Language.
- Students may receive one full PE credit through participation on two different OSAA-sanctioned sports teams at Westside or at your public school. Students will receive a grade of P, rather than A through F for this credit. Students do not have to earn the entire credit in the same school year. If a student takes a regular PE class in the future, the credit earned through sports participation will be removed from their transcript.
- Students may take one credit in an online or correspondence format during their enrollment at Westside. There is not a limit on the number of classroom or “instructional” classes a student may take outside of Westside and transfer in to us.
