Block Schedule (4x4)
Class rank is computed at the end of each semester and is based on the student grades in all credit classes for grades 9-12. All students are included in class ranking. More than one student may have the same class rank.
GPA is determined by dividing the total number of grade points by the number of credits taken.
Advanced Placement and concurrent enrollment
A = 4.5
B = 3.5
C = 2.5
D = 1.5
F = 0
The grading system is used with a 4 point GPA computed cumulatively on a semester basis. “Plus” grades equal .33 more than the letter grade, except A+, which is not used. “Minus” grades equal .33 less than the quarter letter grade.
An ‘I’ (Incomplete) can be given to students who, for extenuating circumstances, were not able to complete work prior to the end of the marking period. The student has two weeks to have the incomplete grade changed to another letter grade; otherwise it automatically is changed to an ‘F’.
Weighted grades are given for Advanced Placement classes. Grades in these courses are weighted an extra .5 when calculating GPA.
