    Social Studies - Minimum level of expertise – Fourth credit in Honor, AP or IB Diploma World & Classical Languages - Minimum level of expertise – Level 3 or higher 
     
    Electives need to be those of rigor in the core curriculum's or students should be building up to the third level in an elective area where rigor is rewarded as an Honors level course.
     
    In the five core curricula there are many honors level courses to choose from, as well as AP and IB Diploma courses. As an IB World School, all 9th and 10th graders are part of the IB Middle Years Programme. It is expected that students take courses in the 5 MYP subject areas of English, social studies, science, mathematics, and world and classical languages. Regarding their WCL course, students are expected to continue the second language that they started in middle school if it is offered here at Meade High School through at least 10th grade. 
     
    Additionally, students must take at least 1 course each year in the following MYP subject areas: the arts, physical and health education, or tech ed. 
    Ideally, students would take a course in all three of these MYP subject areas in both 9th and 10th grade in order to have the most well-rounded educational experience possible.
