GPA

Last Updated: 1/7/2020 7:34 PM

This number is the grades you earn in your classes divided by the number of credits you take.  We have two grading scales at South Oldham High School.    One is for unweighted GPA, while the other is for weighted GPA.  A weighted GPA only come from taking AP courses.  We do not have D's.  Anything below a 70% is an F.  Below are the two scales:

Unweighted Scale                                                                                             Weighted Scale
A=4 points                                                                                                                                                        A=5 points
B=3 points                                                                                                                                                        B=4 points
C=2 points                                                                                                                                                       C=3 points
F=0 points                                                                                                                                                        F=0 points

                                                                                     Grading Scale
                                                                                      A-- 100-90%

                                                                                      B-- 89-80%
                                                                                      C-- 79-70%
                                                                                      F-- 69% and below
