Each course is connected to between 5 and 20 standards. Primarily, students are being asked to demonstrate proficiency towards those standards.
For each assignment, students receive a proficiency grade (1 – 4) on each standard, as well as a final score of 1 – 4 on the assignment. Assignment grades also take into account our HOW system, or Habits of Work: timeliness, effort, participation, and character.
Report cards are printed at the end of each semester. There are no quarter grades, as grades are calculated and visible continually throughout the semester. The bar for students to pass a course is 2.0 or higher on the final course grade.
