Graduation Requirements

Ponderosa graduates possess some of the lowest college remediation rates in the state. Graduation rates at Ponderosa High School have remained impressive throughout Ponderosa’s 35-year history. In fact, the graduation rate has remained above 95% for over a decade.  Annually, our students earn an average of 3.5 million in scholarships.  

In order to maintain this high graduation rate and continue to encourage scholarship opportunities for our students, we promote all students and parents to be familiar with the expectations and requirements for our students in regard to graduation.  Our guidance counseling office as well as administration is here to answer any questions regarding graduation requirement or graduation competencies.
