5 GRADE LEVEL CLASSIFICATION Students are classified based on the year they first entered 9 th grade and the number of academic credits they have earned at the beginning of the school year. The FHSP + Endorsement requires a total of 26 credits.

6 CLASS RANK Class rank is based on the cumulative grade point average of high school credit courses.

Class rank is first officially calculated during the SPRING semester of the JUNIOR year and is updated after each subsequent semester.

7 GPA-GRADE POINT AVERAGE Students receive a GPA as soon as they take a high school course. Class ranks are distributed in the spring of a student s Junior/11 th Grade year Types Weighted Unweighted Reminder: We are on a 4.0 grading scale
