Grade Point Average (GPA) and Class Rank

The grade point average is based on the final grade earned in each course. The grade point average is cumulative and is calculated at the end of each semester from Grades 9 through 12. Pass/fail courses are not included in the calculation.

The class rank is determined by the relative position of each grade point average in a graduating class from Grades 9 through 12. Rank in class for all students is computed by compiling grades on a cumulative basis over the period of time from grade 9 thru 2nd term of the senior year. This compilation of grades is based on the quality point system used to designate honor roll and honor graduates. The quality average is compiled, and each student is then listed in mathematical order. It should be emphasized that rank in class is a cumulative compilation of grade averages including physical education and health but not pass-fail courses.
