Students receive letter grades based on their achievement in each class. Grade Point Average (GPA) is determined using a four-point system, rounding each grade to the whole number on the student's transcript.
|Grade||Definition||Grade Points Given|
|D||Minimum Passing Grade||1.0|
IB Classes are weighted differently using a five-point scale.
Other marks may appear on one's transcript but do not effect GPA (except WF):
(credit but not counted in GPA. Must achieve C or above)
|WF||Withdraw Fail (affects GPA)
|WX||Withdraw No Grade|
|NG||No Grade, No Credit|
Cleveland computes two separate class GPAs and rankings for seniors based on six semesters.
Unweighted rank and GPA is calculated based on the cumulative GPA of all classes on a four-point scale.
Weighted rank and GPA is re-calculated with a weighted differential based on a five-point scale for IB classes only.
