Grading System
 

In grades 1-12, the following letter grades are indicated:
 

A         Excellent         100-90
B         Good               89-80
C         Average           79-70
D         Poor                 69-60
F          Failure             Below 60

 

 

Calculation of 9 Week Grades and Semester Averages
 

Grades 1-5 will calculate 9 weeks averages by taking total points earned divided by total points possible, and grades 6-12 will calculate 9 weeks averages using the following formula:

 

            •           Tests/major projects – 60%
            •           Classwork/quizzes/homework – 40%
            **        Nine week tests will be included in the 60% but count as 2 tests.

 

Semester Averages will be calculated for grades 9-12 as follows:


•           First 9 Weeks=40%
•           Second 9 Weeks=40%
•           Semester Exam=20%

 

 

Calculation of Grade Point Averages
 

A student’s grade point average will be calculated using the point system described below.  Points will be assigned for each class the student has successfully completed.  Points will be assigned by semesters as the credits are earned.  Therefore, a GPA will be calculated twice a year – at the end of the first semester and the end of the school year.  Grade point averages are calculated to the fourth decimal place.

 

 

GPA Point Systems
 

Regular classes (English I, II, III and IV, Physical Science, Biology, Environmental Science, World History, US History I, and II, Government, Economics, Algebra I, Geometry, and Electives) will follow a 4.0 point scale as follows:
 

A         4 points
B         3 points
C         2 points
D         1 point
F          no credit/no points awarded
 

Advanced classes (Physics, Chemistry, Algebra II w/Trigonometry, Pre-Calculus, Calculus, Dual Enrollment or AP classes) will follow a 5.0 point scale as follows:
 

A         5 points
B         4 points
C         3 points
D         1 point
F          no credit/no points awarded
 

A student’s grade point average will include all subjects taken beginning with the first semester of the 9th grade, except for students who are taking Algebra I in the 8th grade.  As points are earned they will carry forward from one year to the next through the second semester of the twelfth grade.
