The Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education requires students to meet the competency determination on the MCAS exams (English language arts, mathematics, and science) in order to receive a high school diploma. In cases where students fail the MCAS test, the school may automatically adjust their course schedule to ensure that they receive extra help in the relevant subject(s). Schedule changes will be made at the discretion of the school.
Students who do not meet the scoring threshold on the ELA or Math MCAS exam in high school established by the Department must meet the requirements of an Educational Proficiency Plan (EPP). When grant funding is available, the school runs an Academic Support Program for students needing help in mathematics, science, or English language arts.
