The scholastic year is divided into four quarters. The grade for each quarter is based on daily assignments, class participation, quizzes, and tests. (Extra credit work assigned after the end of the quarter is not allowed.) In the computation of the student’s quarter, semester, and final grade, only the one-digit fraction of .5 or greater is automatically rounded to the next higher number. Semester grades are determined by averaging the two-quarter numerical grades (80%) and the semester exam grade (20%). The final grade in any course is the average of the two-semester numerical grades. A numerical average of 70% or better is required to receive credit. Students who do not meet the attendance requirements will not receive credit for the course.
Grade Point Average
All students’ grades (report cards, transcripts) will be reported on a 4.0 scale. School awards and Honor Graduate distinctions will also use the 4.0 scale. Students will earn an extra quality point for a grade of A, B, or C in state-designated Honors and Dual Enrollment classes taken in the 11-12th grade when calculating the TOPS GPA.
