SHS Counseling Department

Students have been preparing for End-of-Course throughout this year in their various classes. Over the course of a student’s high school career, they are required to take an end of course assessment in the following subjects*:

- Language Arts I (9th grade)

- Language Arts II (10th grade)

- Algebra

- Geometry

- Biology

- American History

- American Government


The state of Ohio requires an accumulation of eighteen points on these assessments in order to graduate under the test provision.  Each test score can earn you up to five graduation points. You must have a minimum of four points in math, four points in English and six points across science and social studies.

This spring the testing schedule will be as follows:

Buses will run a normal schedule on two hour delay day.  Students not testing will report to school on a two hour delay schedule. Students can refer to the rosters hung up by the main office to verify what tests they will be taking and their room assignments. Please help insure your student get a good night of sleep and eats a good breakfast in an effort to have them reach their peak performance on each test.

Any questions about the current status of AIR testing and total points for graduation can be directed to your school counselor.  The office phone number is (937) 494-2080 and emails are listed below.
