Credit for each course taught at MJHS/MHS is based on the Carnegie Unit.
MJHS uses letter grades (A, B, C, D, F, P) to report student progress. Plus/minus may be added to the letter grade as an incentive/warning. The plus/minus will appear on the student’s record, but will have no quality point value when computing the GPA.
To calculate the Grade Point Average (GPA) add up all of the quality points for the courses taken and divide by the total number of credits that have been earned.
Q1(37.5%) + Q2(37.5) + Sem. Ex (25%) = S1 S1(50%)+S2(50%)=Final Grade
Q3(37.5%) + Q4(37.5%) + TCAP or Course Exam (25%) = S2Grades
First (1st) Semester Exams will compose 25% of first semester average
According to School Board Policy –to receive credit for passing any grade or course students must attend 90% of class time
There is no perfect formula for determining the proper amount of academic study for each student. It is not unreasonable to expect a student to routinely have academic study each night and some weekends.
