    Math Credits: students will fulfill the standard Math requirement one of two ways, either with Algebra I, Geometry, Algebra II, and a 4th math; OR with Math I, Math II, Math III, and a 4th math.

    DPS Graduation Requirements: If a student is enrolled at Northern all four years, Durham Public Schools' local graduation requirements specify 28 total credits earned; however, the total credits earned requirement can be adjusted due to certain circumstances or curricular limitations, if these denied the student the opportunity to earn eight credits per year.
