Grading Scale

Percentage Grades are used to evaluate students. Percentage Grades appear on report cards that are issued every six weeks, permanent records, and transcripts. Since 2015, GPA is computed on a weighted 5.0 scale.  Honors courses will be awarded an additional 0.5 grade points and distinguished classes will be awarded additional 1.0 grade points. Grades of 69 or lower are considered failing.
