• Rank-in-Class Guidelines and Grade Point Average

    Students have a weighted grade point average and class rank expressed in deciles. The details of both of these systems are described below.  Only the weighted GPA is on a student's transcript.

    Grade Point Average

    This system will calculate a weighted GPA for students using the enclosed scale. The procedure for the computation of the weighted grade point average is as follows:

    1. All letter grades are converted to a numerical weight as defined below

    A

    B

    C

    D

    F

    AP

    4.8

    4.3

    3.3

    1.8

    0

    Honors

    4.5

    4.0

    3.0

    1.5

    0

    Accelerated

    4.2

    3.4

    2.4

    1.2

    0

    All Other Courses

    4.0

    3.0

    2.0

    1.0

    2. Grade points for each course are determined by multiplying two factors: the numerical weight of the final grade as reflected in the chart above and the credit value.

    3. GPA is determined by dividing the total of the course grade points by the total of attempted credits.

    4. At the end of each school year, GPA is computed and is cumulative beginning with grade 9.

    Rank-in-Class

    A student’s rank-in-class will be reflected through a percentile system. In addition, Council Rock does not provide an individual student ranking. A complete procedure statement concerning rank-in class is on file in the Counseling Center, where further information can be obtained. A student can contact their counselor for their decile information.
