Making the Grade
Here is a summary of our grading policy. It might be a little different than what you grew up with, but we’ve learned that this system helps kids learn.
- Errors will be clearly marked on assignments, but teachers put simple comments to represent performance, instead of grades.
- The school is using a 4-Level Grading Scale instead of percent correct when we grade. Scores are not based on percent correct, but on the description of student performance.
- Assignment scores still average, but based on the level of performance, not the percent correct.
