Class Rank and Quality Points

A system of quality points is used in the calculation of class rank.

The accumulation of quality points is dependent upon the number of courses taken by a student, course credits, course groupings and the final grade achieved. Points awarded are based on each grade achieved and totaled for the number of courses taken. A credit is factored into each course taken. If the course is other than five credits, e.g. a 1 credit course, it receives 1/5 of the weighted points assigned to a five credit course.

The group for each course is listed in the right column next to each course description.

Physical education, health, driver’s education, guidance, leadership, technology workshop, senior seminar, conversational English and math skills review are not considered in class rank.
