A minimum of two years of mathematics is required for graduation from Santa Monica High School (30 units). A minimum of 1 year (10 units) must be taken in grades 10-12. However, students are encouraged to take as many math courses as they wish, while attending Samohi.
Samohi’s college prep sequence includes the following; Algebra, Geometry (P & HP), Algebra II (P & HP), and Pre-Calculus (P & HP). Successful completion of these courses prepares students for admission to the UC/CSU system as well as other universities.
For those who want to continue their studies in mathematics, Samohi offers the following; Calculus A/B, B/C, and D/E, Statistics and Statistics AP.
Prior to enrollment transfer students whose previous mathematics course does not clearly communicate an equivalent math level will be administered a math placement test.
