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.
