Academic grading system[edit]

Grades are reported in terms of the stanine. 1.00 is the highest grade while 5.00 is a failing mark. 2.50 is the passing grade and any grade lower than this is termed substandard. The student's current standing for a subject is calculated by adding 1/3 of the previous quarter's grade and 2/3 of the tentative grade of the quarter. The general weighted average (GWA) of the student should be 2.25 or better to be in good standing.

Stanine[edit]

Grade Percentage Range Equivalent Range
1.00 96 - 100 98 - 100
1.25 90 - 95 95 - 97
1.50 84 - 89 92 - 94
1.75 78 - 83 89 - 91
2.00 72 - 77 86 - 88
2.25 66 - 71 83 - 85
2.50 60 - 65 80 - 82
2.75 55 - 59 77 - 79
3.00 50 - 54 74 - 76
4.00 40 - 49 70 - 73
5.00 Below 40 Below 70

Note: The percentage range is used in actual computations of grades while the equivalent range is used in translating the grades for use outside of the system (e.g. application to colleges/universities).

Director's List[edit]

Every quarter, students who garner a general weighted average (GWA) of 1.50 or better are included in an honor roll known as the Director's List.
