GRADES & TRANSCRIPTS


INSTRUCTIONAL PERIOD 

Year-long classes are taken in two semesters- Fall and Spring, consisting of three, six-week, grading periods. 

Report cards are sent to the student’s home. Copies are available at the end of each grading period, from the Grade-Level Counselor. Only final semester grades are included on official academic transcripts.

GRADUATION REQUIREMENTS

Students earn credit for D grades or higher. College admission requirements ask that students earn a C grade or higher.  

If a student receives a D or F, and repeats the same course, the higher grade will be used in the GPA calculation, although both courses and grades remain on the transcript. 

GPA- GRADE POINT AVERAGE

Two types of GPA will appear on your student's transcript:

• Cumulative 9-12 Unweighted: averages every course taken in  grades 9-12 on a 4.0 scale.

• Cumulative 9-12 Weighted: averages every course taken in 9-12, with an extra point given for completed Honors or AP classes.

Students and parents can view grades, unofficial transcripts and graduation status through School Loop at any time.  Asawa SOTA does not rank its students.  For further info the grading criteria used by colleges to determine admissions, visit the SOTA College Center or contact Leslie Roberts.
