Graduation from the Twin Rivers Unified School District will require the successful completion of a minimum of 220 credits, which are accumulated at the rate of 30 per semester, 60 per school year, in grades 9, 10, 11, and 12. A student may earn five high school credits upon successful completion of a course. High school students will move sequentially through their four years of high school.
