Graduation Requirements & Reporting Grades

Grade Reporting Procedure

It is important to note that the evaluation of student progress is the sole responsibility of the classroom teacher. No student will pass a course if the requirements for that course remain unfulfilled at the end of the school year. For example, a student who receives a C in each of the first two grading periods cannot hope to pass if s/he fails to attend the course regularly during the second half of the year. Regular course attendance is a course requirement, and no passing grade will be given unless the legitimate requirements for the course have been completed. Students should always consult with their counselor to see how various courses will influence their GPA. Cumulative GPA and class rank will be calculated at the end of each school year.

Quality points are values assigned to each letter grade. The values are as follows for the three curriculum levels:

  Regular Honors Advanced
 Grading Scale
  A 4.0    4.5 5.0     90-100 
  B 3.0  3.5  4.0  80-89 
 C 2.0  2.5  3.0    70-79 
 D 1.0   1.0  1.0  60-69 
 E/F 0.0  0.0  0.0  0-59 
 P 0.0  0.0
