**​Students can earn a passing score on the AP Exam or SAT II for a language other than English in lieu of taking a world language class. This will also meet the A-G requirement for a language other than English. Students who pursue this option will still need to meet the 220 credit minimum for graduation. Students who have IEPs should check in with their Case Manager regarding this requirement.
