Survey Shows Most Seniors Like School
Most senior high school students
in North Carolina's public schools
are busy with their course work
and find the 12th grade to be a
valuable educational experience.
That's the conclusion of a
legislative study committee who
studied the significance of the final
year of high school and will report
its findings to the 1983 Genera]
Their report includes the
preliminary results of a recent
survey from the Controller's Of
fice of the State Board of Educa
According to the preliminary
results of the survey, most students
take a full course load in the 12th
grade. Ninety-five percent of the
seniors responding to the survey
were carrying four or more courses
in their senior year; 79% were tak
ing five or more courses.
To take a full course load is the
norm at most North Carolina high
schools. At 86% of high schools, a
typical senior is enrolled in five or
jnorc courses; at 97 r# of the high
schools, a typical senior is enrolled
in four or more courses.
North Carolina requires a total
of 18 courses for high school
graduation. The survey found that
51?7o of the seniors must take three
or more courses in their senior year
to complete the minimum state re
quirements for graduation.
Most community and technical
colleges have agreements with local
school systems permitting high
school students to take community
college courses that count toward
high school graduation.

survey revealed that about 125

credit towards high school gradua
tion. In almost all instances,
students pay the tuition for com
munity college courses. The

courses taken concurrent with
