 Honor Roll:

 There are three types of honors that students can achieve each marking period.  Honor rolls are determined independently each marking period and use unweighted GPAs since students are not competing against each other to achieve an honor roll distinction.

Principal’s Honor Roll requires a 4.0 minimum unweighted GPA for the marking period and student grades must be in the A range.

Distinguished Honor Roll requires a minimum of a 3.51 unweighted GPA for the marking period and student grades must be in the B- to A range.

Honor Roll requires a minimum of 3.0 unweighted GPA for the marking period and student grades must be in the C to A range.

 

 GPA Calculation:

   Each marking period, the honor roll is generated from unweighted GPAs. 

    GPA is calculated by dividing the total quality points by attempted credits.
