Can I take advanced classes in 9th grade if I do not take them in 8th grade?
With the exception of the advanced math and science options, students can opt to take an advanced course in 9th grade if they have not taken an advanced course in 8th grade. Both math and science require a student to take the advanced class in 8th grade as a prerequisite to the advanced class in 9th grade. Students taking advanced 8th-grade science must take advanced biology in 9th grade. Students taking 8th grade advanced English or social studies can opt out of the advanced courses in 9th grade.
