    • C = 73-76                                          AVERAGE                                        
    • C- = 70-72
    • E = 60-69 (eligible for summer school), F = below 60 (Not eligible for summer school)

    • G.P.A. Information:
    • ACADEMIC LEVEL ELECTIVE COURSE HAVE NEUTRAL WEIGHTING
    • Students can ‘opt-in’ to have these classes included into their GPA
    • Colloquium and Paideia are not included in GPA
    • All other classes taken in high school are included in the calculation of a student’s GPA
    • The WCASD Quality Point Scale:

     

    GRADE                College &Career Prep          HONORS             Accelerated Honors/AP

    A+ = 97-100             4.3                                 4.73                            5.16                        

    A = 93-96                 4.0                                 4.4                              4.8      

    A - = 90-92               3.7                                 4.07                            4.44                       

     

    B+ = 87-89                3.3                                 3.63                            3.96            

    B = 83-86                 3.0                                 3.3                              3.6

    C- = 70-72                1.7                                 1.87                            2.04                          

    E= 60-69 (Non-passing; eligible for summer school, zero quality points)

    F = Below 60 (Not eligible for summer school, zero quality points)         

    The old family recipe for figuring out your G.P.A.

      • 1. CREDIT VALUE OF THE ATTEMPTED COURSE MULTIPLIED BY THE QUALITY POINT VALUE FOR THE GRADE RECEIVED = QUALITY PTS.
      • 2. FIND THE SUM OF ALL QUALITY POINTS
      • 3. DIVIDE THE TOTAL QUALITY POINTS BY THE TOTAL CREDITS ATTEMPTED
    • So let’s do an example: Algebra I CCP final grade is B+ so that’s 3.3 Quality Points, African Asian Accelerated Honors final grade is a B- so that’s 3.24 Quality Points and Health Fitness final grade is an A so that’s 4.0 quality points.

     

    • 11 total quality points divided by 3 credits attempted computes to a G.P.A. of 3.51 (rounded)
