Calculating Your Semester G.P.A.
  • TWHS calculates your G.P.A. on a 4.0 scale:
  • TWHS does not use “+” and “-” when calculating your grades. In other words, an A- is actually calculated as an A. B+ is actually calculated as a B, etc.
  • Q3 (40%) + Q4 (40%) + Exams (20%) = Semester grade.
  • .5 credit classes are weighted more than .25 classes. AP courses are on a 5.0 scale.
