Grading Options

Two grading options have been established for some of the courses offered to students.

The grades that students earn in selected courses at the Honors and Advanced Placement level are weighted. Students will receive additional credit toward their grade point average, or GPA, for successful completion of these courses. Both GPAs are included on the student transcript sent to colleges and universities.

Students also have the option to take selected elective courses and request that the grade they receive in those classes be excluded from the computation of their GPA. This option can be used with a maximum of two trimesters of course work during a student’s four years at Homestead with the maximum of one course per trimester.

Additional information related to these grading options can be obtained from the counseling staff or by referring to the Parent/Student Handbook.
