Grading

Report Cards:

Students receive report cards four times each year. Each report card covers about a nine-week period of classroom time. The first three report cards are distributed to the students on the dates listed on the school calendar. The final report card is mailed about 10 days after school is out. The dates when report cards are issued are on the school calendar. If the end of a quarter changes due to snow days, the revised report card distribution will be posted in the Newsline.

Calculating GPA

The use of Grade Points is a numeric way of communication the value of a letter grade.  A student's official cumulative G.P.A. is calculated at the end of each school year.  The G.P.A. is computed by multiplying the final course grade's numerical points times the assigned course credit.  (See grading scale above)  The sum is referred to as the quality points.  The sum of the quality points is than divided by the total number of credits attempted which will give you the G.P.A.  Weighted classes use a multiplier of 1.2 times the grade points.  See the example below.

Calculation formula:        Grade Points  X  Weight  X  Credit        =    G.P.A

                                                     Total Attempted Credits

 

Course Grade    Grade Points   Weight    Credit   Quality Points 
Honors English C+    2.37 X    1.2 X    .50 =  1.422
Algebra II A    4.00 X 1.0 X 1.00 =  4.00
Social Issues B-    2.63 X 1.0 X .25 =  .6575
Environ. Sci. A    4.00 X 1.0 X .50 =  2.00
Culinary Arts B+    3.37 X 1.0 X .25 =  .8425
                     2.50     8.922

 

 8.922/2.50 = 3.5688 GPA  

 

Scheduling

Students are advised to select courses wisely and carefully with a post-secondary goal in mind. All students are expected to continue in and complete the courses selected. Registration for the following year occurs in February. The registration form requires a student and parent signature. Parents, please work with students to select appropriate classes. Next year's schedule will be distributed before the end of the year. Students have until the end of the first week of school to make any necessary changes for the entire year. If a schedule change is needed please stop by the Guidance Office and schedule an appointment with Mrs. Hunsberger or Mr. Kabakjian.
