School Program

The school year at the high school is divided into two 18-week semesters. One credit is earned for a full year. One-half credit is earned for one semester.

The first honor roll is an alphabetically arranged list of all students achieving a grade point average of 3.67 or above. The second honor roll is a list of students achieving a grade point average of at least 3.17 to 3.66.

Academic courses are defined as those in the department of English, world language, mathematics, science, social studies, and other courses.

The State Board of Education determines the numerical value of letter grades:

A = 4.0  A = 4.0  C = 2.0 D+ = 1.3
A- = 3.7 B- = 2.7  C- = 1.7 D = 1.0
B+ = 3.3 C+ = 2.3 F = 0.0  

A pass/fail option may be used in place of the A-F grading scale in a course not classified as an academic course and not required for graduation. A Pass/Fail grade will not be figured in the grade point if a ā€œPā€ grade is earned. An ā€œFā€ grade will, however, be included in determining the grade point average.

Parents or adult students must request the pass/fail option within ten (10) days of the beginning of a course. The principal may authorize pass/fail after consultation with parents, students, and counselor after ten days.
