The Principal’s Honor List contains the names of students having a 4.000 Quarterly Point Average (QPA) or greater and no grade lower than a C in all courses that are entered into the calculation of the QPA. The Quarterly Point Average is calculated as follows:
- A mark is assigned a numerical value called the Quality Point (QP). The Quality Point values for course marks are:
|Grade||AP Courses||Honors Courses||Others|
|90-100||5 QP||4.5 QP||4 QP|
|80-89||4 QP||3.5 QP||3 QP|
|70-79||3 QP||2.5 QP||2 QP|
|60-69||2 QP||1.5 QP||1 QP|
|0-59||0 QP||0 QP||0 QP|
M, N, P, WP and WF are not used in calculating GPA.
- Each course has an assigned credit value. A course’s credit value is based on the number of meeting times per cycle and the length of the course. This credit value is then divided by the number of marking periods the course meets to determine the credit value per marking period.
- The marking period credit value for each quarter is multiplied times the Quality Point Value of the grade earned in the marking period.
- The QPA is determined by dividing the total Quality Points for the marking period for all courses by the total attempted course credits attempted in the marking period for all courses. Note: This calculation does not include Wellness/Fitness and/or Pass/Fail courses.
The Honor Roll contains the names of students having a Quarterly Point Average (QPA) from 3.25 to 3.999 and no grade lower than a C in all courses that are entered into the calculation of the QPA.
A student who received an incomplete mark (“I“), A WP or WF, or a failing mark in any course is not eligible for either the Principal’s Honor List or the Honor Roll.
A student who believes that an error exists in either the Principal’s Honor List or the Honor Roll should immediately report the discrepancy to his/her counselor.
Students with a cumulative GPA of 3.800 at the conclusion of the second quarter of the senior year will be considered Honor Graduates. (No rounding up of GPA will be considered, i.e. student with a 3.799 will not be listed as an Honor Graduate.)
A final cumulative GPA will be calculated after the final exam. Any senior who has a 3.800 cumulative GPA at this time will be added to the group, which was determined in the second quarter but their name will not appear in the program at graduation.
