Grading System

Cherokee County uses numerical grades for unweighted grade reporting. Should letter grades be needed the equivalent numerical grades are as follows:

A = 90-100
B = 80-89
C = 71-79
D = 70
F = 0-69

Extra points are awarded to advanced courses as follows when computing weighted NGA:

Honors Courses (18):  5 points added to numerical grade
AP Courses (22):  10 points added to numerical grade.

All transcripts to Post-Secondary Institutions reflect the grade for each course before points are added.

Class Rank is determined by the weighted cumulative numeric grade average of graduating seniors at the completion of their graduation requirements. These averages are placed in numerical order from highest to lowest to determine class rank. All classes are included when calculating NGA and class rank.

For purpose of computing a GPA, the following criteria is used:

4 = 90-100
3 = 80-89
2 = 71-79
1 = 70
