    • HONOR’S CLASSES = +1 Quality Point toward a “Weighted GPA” (all MYP courses in 9th grade are Honor’s Level)
    • AP & DP CLASSES = +2 Quality Points toward a “Weighted GPA”
  • All grades for HS credit courses are included on transcripts
    • Those taken in MS are coded differently
    • Codes also differentiate Honors/AP/DP

  • “Don’t worry; Be happy!”
    • It’s great to have high expectations, but…
  • “One bad apple don’t spoil the whole bunch, girl!”
    • Year-long classes
    • Opportunities for reflection and improvement
    • Teachers’ desire for all to succeed
      • No “gotchas!”
      • SMART Lunch tutorials
96 100 4 0 regular 5 0 honors 6 0 ap dp
96-100 = 4.0 Regular; 5.0 Honors; 6.0 AP/DP

Students are awarded points for every FINAL grade they receive.

The points are then averaged together to calculate the GPA.
