Explanation of marking system:

A  = Excellent               D = Below Average         NC = No Credit                      P = College Prep                     ELD = English Development

B  = Above average       F  = Failing                       H = Honors                            HS1 = RSP                             IE = Intensive English

GPAs are reported on a 4.0 scale and courses marked with a “+” are weighted thus: A = 5, B = 4, C = 3. Class rank is calculated using the academic weighted average of all marks earned in all semester grades.
