Class Rank Computation

Class rank will be computed at the end of each semester beginning with the first semester of high school and ending with the 8th semester (7th for mid-term graduates). It will be based on the average cumulative GPA from semester grades. Selected courses will be weighted, not to give more importance to one course over another, but to differentiate the good students from the best students. The following courses will be weighted for class rank purposes.
  • Honors English
  • Pre-Calculus I
  • Biology II
  • Chemistry I
  • Physics I
  • French III
  • French IV
  • Spanish III
  • Spanish IV
  • Any AP Course
Since class rank is basically compiled to meet the de- mands of college institutions, the courses weighted are those that are based on university standards and gener- ally accepted as advanced college preparatory courses. Beginning with the class of 2012, AP classes will receive more weight in the cumulative GPA.
