                  How to Calculate Your GPA – Grades 9-12
Honor Roll and Sports/Activity Eligibility GPA’s in 9-12 are determined using
all classes.
First you have to determine your grade points, and then you take an average. Every letter grade
has a numerical value assigned to it.
   GRADING SCALE:

   Grade              Grade Points                   Grade           Grade Points
   A+ = 100              4.000                       C+ = 80-82         2.333
   A = 95-99             4.000                       C = 75-79          2.000
   A- = 93-94            3.667                       C- = 73-74         1.667
   B+ = 90-92            3.333                       D+ = 71-72         1.333
   B = 85-89             3.000                       D = 67-70          1.000
   B- = 83-84            2.667                       D- = 65-66         .6670
                                                     F - 64 and below    000

To find out your grade points for a class you have taken, multiply the numerical value of your
letter grade by the credit of the class.

     Full year classes are worth 1.00 credit
     Semester (half year) courses or classes that meet 2-3 days a week for the year are worth .50
     credit.
     Physical education class that meets for 1 semester is worth .25 credit.
     Personal Fitness that meets for the full year is worth .50 credit.

If you are taking an English class and are getting a B+ then your grade point for that class is
3.333 X 1.00 = 3.333. If you are taking a physical education course and you are getting an A
then your grade point is a 4.000 X .25 = 1.000. If you have a semester course and you getting a
C your grade point is 2.000 X.50 = 1.00

Once you have figured out your grade point for each of your classes you can compute the
average. You arrive at an average by first adding the grade points together and then dividing that
number by the number of total credits.

If we use the grades above you would add 3.333 + 1.000 + 1.00 = 5.333 then divide that total by
1.75 (the number of credits ) and the answer is your GPA – in this case the GPA is 3.047.

                How to Calculate Your GPA – Grades 7 and 8
Honor Roll and Sports/Activity Eligibility GPA’s are determined using all
classes.
First you have to determine your grade points, and then you take an average. Every letter grade
has a numerical value assigned to it. It goes like this
   GRADING SCALE:

                                                     F - 64 and below    000

To find out your grade points for a class you have taken, multiply the numerical value of your
letter grade by the credit of the class.

Credit for Class:
    In 7th and 8th grade the following classes are worth 1.00 credit – Bible, English, Math,
     Science, Social Studies, Spanish
    The following classes are worth .50 credit – Art, Choir, Band, Computer, Personal Fitness
    Physical education is worth .25 credit

If you are taking an English class and are getting a B+ then your grade point for that class is
3.333 X 1.00 = 3.333. If you are taking a physical education course and you are getting an A
then your grade point is a 4.000 X .25 = 1.000. If you have a computer class and you getting a C
your grade point is 2.000 X.50 = 1.00

Once you have figured out your grade point for each of your classes you can compute the
average. You arrive at an average by first adding the grade points together and then dividing that
number by the number of total credits.

If we use the grades above you would add 3.333 + 1.000 + 1.00 = 5.333 then divide that total by
1.75 (the number of credits ) and the answer is your GPA – in this case the GPA is 3.047.

                How to Calculate Your GPA – Grades 5 and 6
GPA for Honor Roll in 5th and 6th grade include grades in: Bible, English/Lang Arts,
Spelling, Math, Science and Social Studies.

All classes with O, S, or U grades are not used to determine Honor Roll in grades 5 and 6.

First you have to determine your grade points, and then you take an average. Every letter grade
has a numerical value assigned to it.

   GRADING SCALE:

   Grade               Grade Points                  Grade           Grade Points
   A+ = 100              4.000                       C+ = 80-82         2.333
   A = 95-99             4.000                       C = 75-79          2.000
   A- = 93-94            3.667                       C- = 73-74         1.667
   B+ = 90-92            3.333                       D+ = 71-72         1.333
   B = 85-89             3.000                       D = 67-70          1.000
   B- = 83-84            2.667                       D- = 65-66         .6670
                                                     F - 64 and below    000

In 5th and 6th grades all graded courses are worth 1.00 credit. To determine the GPA take your
grade for the class and write down the grade points for that class. If you are taking an English
class and are getting a B+ then the grade point for that class is 3.333. If you are taking a math
class and your grade is an A then the grade point for that class is 4.000.

Once you have figured out your grade point for each of your classes you can compute the
average. You arrive at an average by first adding the grade points together and then dividing that
number by the number of classes you have taken.

If we use the grades above you would add 3.333 + 4.000 = 7.333 then divide that total by 2 (the
number of classes) and the answer is your GPA – in this case the GPA is 3.6665 – which is
rounded to 3.667.
