    The grade point average scale is used to determine grade points for a one-year course (one period). A one-semester (one period) course counts one-half of the point value. If a year's course is two or three periods long, the point value is doubled or tripled.

    Ranking includes all courses for which credit was earned or could have been earned. Included are Algebra I, French I, Latin I, German I, and Spanish I taught in middle school.

    SPECIAL CURRICULUM FEATURES

    Certain courses are grouped to meet students' needs through academic challenges appropriate to their abilities.

    ACADEMIC: Course content and expected student performance require additional reading and writing at a rigorous level.
