Grading & Report Cards

A grade is a fair estimate of the student’s development in relation to prescribed criteria for his/her level. The following factors are used for proper evaluation:  Tests, quizzes, homework, classroom participation, behavior, etc.

Pre-School  students receive report cards twice a year. They are graded as follows:
Special Commendation, Satisfactory Growth, Needs Improvement.

Kindergarten through Fifth graders receive report cards quarterly.

Sixth through Eighth graders are graded quarterly. Also, they are given mid terms and final exam grades. These are incorporated in the overall GPA of the student.

Letter grades have numerical and GPA equivalence as follows:
