Adam’s Answer

Definitely reference Marini’s answer. I would say that as long as you are progressing and taking the proper number of classes each year you should be fine. I highly suggest reaching out to your guidance counselor or academic advisor about the school and state specific requirements. Typically a school will have a seminar or assembly when it comes time to select courses for the upcoming year. If you don't feel comfortable with that, reach out to a teacher or coach that you feel you can talk to and ask them how/who you should go about figuring that out. Good luck!
