Grading Policy

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.
Grades Description Level
A Wow! Exceeeds Expectations 4
B Got it. Meets Expectations. 3
C Almost Got it. Keep Trying. 2
D Does Not Meet. Redo. 1
F What Happened? See Me. 0
