Graduation Requirements

The Ohio Department of Education has changed the graduation requirements beginning with the Class of 2018. Please see your graduation requirements below:

New Graduation Requirements for Class of 2018 and beyond

Graduation Requirements for Classes of 2014-2017


Physical Education Waiver

High school students who plan to participate in interscholastic athletics, marching band, and/or cheerleading at Bowling Green High School for at least two full seasons may be exempt from the high school physical education requirement.


Credit Flexibility

Credit flexibility options are designed for students who demonstrate the ability, interest, and maturity to accept personal responsibility for their learning in a selected curricular area and have the opportunity to pursue it outside of BGHS with a Board of Education-approved program. The credit flexibility option was created to develop learners who design their own research and learning objectives in a formal plan. Click here for more information.
