Honor Roll

Honor Rolls

At the end of each semester, students’ academic achievements are recognized by the various honor rolls:

Upper School Honor Roll
A weighted GPA, one that reflects the rigor of a student’s curriculum by adding fractions of points to the calculation for Honors and Advanced courses, will be used to determine Honor Roll; averaged letter grades are used as a guide. Weighted and unweighted cumulative GPAs appear on a student’s transcript.

Distinguished Honors: Minimum GPA of 3.85 (weighted), A- (unweighted) average for the semester, no grade below B

Honors: Minimum GPA of 3.5 (weighted), B+ average for the semester (unweighted), no grade below a B-

Middle School Honor Roll
A- average and no grade below a B (B- for an Upper School course)

Grading System

The grading system consists of letter grades ranging from A to F.
  • For recording purposes and the compilation of a grade point average, the following equivalents are used: A 4.0; A- 3.67; B+ 3.33; B 3.0; B- 2.67; C+ 2.33; C 2.0; C- 1.67; D+ 1.33; D 1.0; D- 0.67; F 0.0.
  • GPA is calculated after each semester, based on all Upper School semesters. (Cumulative GPA is on all Upper School transcripts.)
  • Only the grades received at the end of each semester and the year’s grades appear on a student’s transcript.
  • A grade of D+ or below means that a student may not be promoted to the next level in the discipline.
