At Gilmer HS we set high expectations for every student, and are determined to ensure that they are college, career, and/or military ready. One way in which we encourage that is by enrolling all students in an Algebra 2 course prior to graduation. Although Algebra 2 is not required to graduate on the Foundation High School Program, students who take Algebra 2 and a math beyond that in high school will be honored as Texas Scholars, and be potentially eligible for automatic college admission and certain state financial aid.
