    • Credits needed for promotion to next grade:
    • 10TH GRADE =5 CREDITS
    • 11TH GRADE = 11 CREDITS
    • 12TH GRADE = 17 CREDITS
    • GRADUATION = 23.8 CREDITS
    • Grade Point Average:

    Grading System:

    • A +=97-100
    • A = 93-96 EXCELLENT
    • A- = 90-92
    • B+ = 87-89
    • B = 83-86 GOOD
    • B- = 80-82
    • C+ = 77-79
    • C = 73-76 AVERAGE                                        
    • C- = 70-72
    • E = 60-69 (eligible for summer school), F = below 60 (Not eligible for summer school)

     

     

    • 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:

    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.

    • CREDIT VALUE OF THE ATTEMPTED COURSE MULTIPLIED BY THE QUALITY POINT VALUE FOR THE GRADE RECEIVED = QUALITY PTS.
    • FIND THE SUM OF ALL QUALITY POINTS
    • 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 51 (rounded)
