Academic Grading Information
Roseville Area High School uses a 4.0 non-weighted grading system. The grade point average (GPA) for each student is calculated each trimester by dividing the honor points earned by the number of credits. Students achieving a GPA of 3.0 or better are named to the honor roll for that trimester. A cumulative GPA for each student is also calculated each trimester by dividing the total honor points earned since 9th grade, by the total number of credits taken since 9th grade. This cumulative GPA is used in determining the class rank and the Senior Honor Roll list. The academic grades used on report cards, progress reports, and student records appear in letter form. Teachers may adopt academic regulations for their classroom as stated on their course syllabus.
The numerical equivalency used to determine a student’s GPA is as follows:
Courses with “NM” or “P” are not included in the GPA. “No Mark” is used for students with extenuating circumstances that may prevent them from completing the work in a class before grades are put into the computer. Students have the option of Pass/Fail grading. The forms are available online or from the Student Support Services Office. The deadline for being graded Pass/Fail must be made by mid- trimester.
DUAL HONORS CLASS RANK
Dual Honors Class Rank is an additional class rank system for students who take a minimum number of rigorous credits at RAHS. Qualifying courses include AP/CIS/Pre-AP. A dual rank will be given to students who earn a C or better in 10 or more qualifying credits by the end of 11th grade.
