High school students must take and pass certain required courses and End-of-Course exams to graduate from a Texas public high school. They are English I, English II, Algebra 1, Biology and U.S. History. If a student takes and passes any of the End-of-Course exams in middle school, those scores will count toward their state testing requirments for graduation.
**NOTE: High school students may continue to take the exams until they meet the passing standards.
