    My school has a couple programs for graduation, 'Recommended', 'Distinguished', and 'Scholar'

    As far as I can tell, the recommended just means I will graduate, Distinguished means i will be a 'Distinguished Graduate' (obviously) and the 'Scholar' doesn't matter much between the walls of my school, but does it matter if I am a distinguished graduate rather then a regular one? The only difference here is that I have to take another year of Spanish, which is something I would rather not do if I can reasonably avoid it (my schedule is already terribly packed, I have to take a few classes outside of school, and I am bad at Spanish, and my school tends to have low averages for Spanish class)

    Thank you!

    Where I go you can get a "Standard" or "Advanced" or "AP" diploma depending on the number of credits you've taken, AP tests passed, etc. It varies. Really the only difference is that you get a sticker on your diploma saying you're special. I don't think it makes any difference. Take the other year of Spanish if you think it will strengthen your file.
