GPA CLASS RANK
  • GPA
  • Every course that students take in high school
    counts in calculating the grade point average.
    The G.P.A. is determined by multiplying the
    quality points earned in each course by the
    course weight (that is the number of credits) and
    dividing this by the total number of credits
    attempted. This G.P.A. is reported to colleges as
    students submit their applications.
  • CLASS RANK
  • The class rank is determined by the sum of all
    quality points earned by students in all courses
    offered at the Standard and Premium levels.
    Health and Drivers Education courses are counted
    for class rank, but Physical Education courses do
    not count for class rank. Modified courses do not
    count for class rank.
