A minimum of two years of mathematics taken at the high school level are required for high school graduation. For most students this requirement may mean they must pass Geometry, Algebra 2 or Pre-Calculus to graduate from high school, depending on the initial math course taken in high school.

  • The completion of an Algebra I course in middle school or at the high school is required by the state of California for a high school diploma.
  • Four years of Mathematics are recommended for college bound students.
  • Summer math courses taken at the community college should be viewed only as an enrichment course that is taken before taking the full, year-long course at Alameda High School. Summer community college math courses may not be used to advance in math by skipping a math course offered at the high school.
