Grading

  • AVERAGE/RANK  IN  CLASS

    At the end of the Junior year, all students are ranked based on a six semester average.  Grades for all classes taken for high school credit are computed to determine class rank. Grades are to be credit weighted (a one credit course counts twice as much as a half credit course and a three credit course counts three times as much as a one credit course).

     

    HONOR  AND  MERIT  ROLL

    A listing of students on the Honor Roll and Merit Roll is published four times per semester.   A student qualifies for the Honor Roll if he/she earns an average of 91% or greater.  The Merit Roll includes students who have earned an average of 85% or greater and less than 91%.
