Calculating Middle School GPA and Honor Roll
In order for a student to obtain the honor roll he/she must receive a 92% GPA with no grade lower than a 83% in any subject area.  Grades from the teachers grade book round up to appear on the report card.  They do not round up again when calculating honor roll.  Students who make the honor roll in each of the first three marking periods will receive the Honor Roll Award at the end of the school year.
