Grading Scale

Valid grades which are printed on the grade report and transcript record and are used in computing the G.P.A. include: A, B, C, D (including a "+" and "-"), F and I (Incomplete which is computed as an F).

Valid grades which are printed on the grade report and transcript record but are not used in computing the G.P.A. include: WP (Withdrew Passing), WF (Withdrew Failing), NG (No Grade) and P (Pass).

Note: Grades earned as an Instructional/Attendance Aid are not computed in determining the G.P.A.

The marks for courses other than Honors and AP are weighted as follows:

A+ 4.3 points
A 4.0 points
A- 3.7 points
B+ 3.3 points
B 3.0 points
B- 2.7 points
C+ 2.3 points
C 2.0 points

"NG" (No Grade) Grading Option

The assigning of an "NG" as a course grade is solely at the discretion of the instructor.
 While an instructor may require additional expectations,
the minimum expectations for ANY "NG" grade option are as follows:

  • The student will respond to all homework and course expectation to the best of his/her ability.
  • The student will respond to all quizzes and examinations to the best of his/her ability.
  • The student will respond to all behavior, tardy, and absence expectations and policies as established by the instructor and the school.

The instructor may exercise the option of changing the course to a graded experience should the student not respond to the above expectations. It is the responsibility of the instructor to inform the student of this change as soon as the decision is made.

A request to change a course from a graded experience to an "NG" WILL NOT be permitted after the second Deficiency Notice date of the semester. (See school calendar for dates.)

GRADE CHANGE POLICY

Grade changes submitted to the Principal after the Grade Reports are due from the instructional staff (for any marking period or semester grade) will be accepted only for reasons of clerical or computational error. Such grade changes will be documented and explained in conference with the Principal. This grade change policy is not applicable in those cases in which the student missed the examination due to extenuating circumstances and needs to remove an Incomplete ("I") grade. According to school grading policy as printed in the Parent/Student Handbook and Departmental Grading Policy it is mathematically impossible for a student to receive a marking period or semester grade that is higher than the grades posted for that particular grading period. Grade point values and departmental evaluation weightings will apply in computing marking period and semester grades.

Honor Roll

All honors are based on the student's grade point average (G.P.A.) as determined by academic year semester grades.

A weighted G.P.A. is used to compute the Honor Roll. Students achieving a weighted G.P.A. of 3.50 and above will receive this honor.

A "D" or "F" in any subject disqualifies a student from the Honor Roll.

Student Aide and NG grades are not computed in the G.P.A.

The Honor Roll is posted two times a year based on first semester and second semester grades.
