Q: What do letter grades mean and how do they impact the Grade Point Average?

Grading System: The following grades are used to report a student’s academic progress:

  • A grade of “A” is given to an active learner who achieves above and beyond grade level expectations. This student has exemplary work habits and a firm grasp of concepts and skills. It is valued at 4.00 points in the Grade Point Average.

  • A grade of “B” means achievement is beyond average expectations. This student has a good grasp of concepts and skills and has demonstrated a maturing thinking process. It is valued at 3.00 points in the Grade Point Average.

  • A grade of “C” indicates satisfactory progress, achievement at an average level, and meeting grade level expectations. It is valued at 2.00 points in the Grade Point Average.

  • There is cause for concern if a student receives a grade of “D” or “U.” These grades often reflect poor work habits and/or insufficient effort. An average lower than a D would indicate that a student may not possess all of the skills necessary to be successful in the next year’s academic program. In this case, the student and the parent will address this deficiency with the teachers. A “D” is valued at 1.00 point in the Grade Point Average and a “U” has a value of 0 points in the Grade Point Average.

  • A grade of “I” (Incomplete) indicates missing assignments that must be made up soon (usually within two weeks). Incomplete grades are counted in the Grade Point Average and have a value of 0 points.
