Grades nine through 12
Anoka-Hennepin high schools have a five-period day structure with three trimesters each school year. A one credit course is earned by completing that class over two trimesters.
Some classes are a half-credit and one trimester. Our high schools provide more than 200 courses and electives, which are outlined in our registration guide. Click here to download the registration guide.
To graduate, students must pass all required courses and earn passing marks in state tests required for graduation. Students have several opportunities to take and pass state required tests.
