    The Saint Louis Public Schools (SLPS) requires 24 units of high school credit, which must be earned from grades 9th through 12th with a grade of D or higher. This program of required and elective courses is to be planned cooperatively by the student, parents, and school counselor. All students must attend (8) semesters from 9th grade through 12th grade.

    All students shall be scheduled for a minimum of eight (8) periods per semester except for seniors who are enrolled in an area college part of the day or involved in an approved work-study program. Seven of the eight assignments must be classes offered for credit.
