Math and Science


Students are required to earn three units of credit in mathematics to graduate from Elk Grove High School. One credit must be in algebra and one in geometry. Students start with algebra as freshmen and then move on to geometry as sophomores. In their junior year, students have the option of taking pre-calculus or higher-level algebra courses. Then, as seniors, students can take AP calculus courses, dual credit math courses, or take a transitional math course. Advanced Placement statistics serves as an additional mathematics elective for students who have already earned algebra credit.

Students must earn at least two units of credit in science to qualify for graduation. Freshmen start with biology and then move on to chemistry as sophomores before taking physics as juniors. Senior year is open for students to choose from a range of electives, including environmental science and ecology as well as Advanced Placement biology, environmental science, physics, and chemistry.
