grade point average
Grade Point Average
  • Students start earning an official unweighted and weighted GPA after the completion of one semester of a high school course.
  • Unweighted is based on all courses awarded:

A = 4 C = 2

B = 3 D = 1

  • Weightedis based on: honors and honors gifted awarded an extra .5 for a semester grade of a C or better. Advanced Placement and dual enrollment courses awarded an extra 1.0 for a semester grade of C or higher.

Where and how we use GPAs:

  • Unweighted GPA (promotion/graduation)
  • Weighted GPA (class rank and academic awards)
  • 9 weeks GPA (on report card)
  • Semester GPA (on transcript)
  • Cumulative GPA – weighted and unweighted (on transcript)
  • Chiles High School GPA is different than GPAs computed by Bright Futures, Colleges/universities and NCAA .
  • 2.0 unweighted GPA required to participate in extracurricular activities
