Grading System

Grades are given in numbers; a “grade point average” (GPA) is used to determine rank in class; graduation and honor eligibility; good standing and probation status; and scholarship eligibility. Students are ranked at the end of each year. The passing grade is 70 or above for core courses. Courses that are designated as Honors (H), receive one additional GPA point and courses that are designated as Advanced Placement (AP) are worth an additional two GPA points according to the Florida Department of Education (FLDOE) course codes and standards. Students completing either of the aforementioned types of courses will have the additional points weighted in their GPA.
