In 1998, the Board of Education of San José Unified School District approved new high school graduation requirements which are among the most rigorous in California. All high school students beginning with the Class of 2002 will be held to the "new" standards. Students already in high school at the time the new standards were implemented-students graduating before 2002, will continue to be held to the "old" standard.

*All courses are college preparatory level courses
*All courses fulfill University of California/California State University admission requirements
As part San José Unified's graduation requirements, beginning with graduating Class of 2002, students must complete 40 hours of community service. In order to inform our students about the various service opportunities available, we are providing students with the chance to connect with service agencies by hosting community service faires at all of our high schools. At each faire between 20-40 agencies talk with students about the areas in which they can perform service. These agencies represent service opportunities from forest restoration to tutoring.
