    High School Guide

    Graduates

    The LWSD High School Guide provides information that will help high school students and their families understand what is required to earn a Lake Washington high school diploma. This guide is an important start to the process: your high school's course catalog will provide more information. Your high school counselor will be an important partner and will be able to answer questions you may have after reviewing this guide.

    Students must fulfill the graduation requirements that are in place when they first enter ninth grade, unless the state legislature votes to reduce those requirements. The requirements will not increase once a student has started ninth grade. The requirements do not change even if the student’s graduation year changes.

    Students must fulfill the following three requirements for graduation:

    1. Earn required high school credits
    2. Complete a "High School and Beyond Plan"
    3. Graduation Pathway Options

    For details about each requirement, see tabs below:
