2015-2016 First Semester Honor Roll

We’re pleased to present the list of students who made the 2015-2016 first semester honor roll.  Congratulations on all your hard work!

How is Honor Roll Determined?

MIDDLE SCHOOL HONOR ROLL
Honor roll in Grades 6 & 7 is determined by the letter grades from the 5 major courses (Math, English, History, Science, and Foreign Language). A student who receives B+ or higher in the 5 major courses receives Maximum Honors; B or higher in the 5 major courses, High Honors; and B- or higher in the 5 major courses, Honors. Any grade below B- or a student with less than the 5 major courses will be ineligible for the honor roll. International students who receive grades of EP, GP, IP, NP or NG are not eligible for the honor roll. In order to receive recognition for the Effort Honor Roll, a student must have effort grades of 2 or better in all their courses.

Grade 8 students must meet the above stated levels in all their courses. Students in honors courses will receive a step in the letter grade for honor roll determination.

UPPER SCHOOL HONOR ROLL
In order to be eligible for honor roll, students must carry at least five (5) credit-bearing courses each semester and must pass all their courses. Students must be enrolled in the course from the end of the drop-add period until the end of the semester in a semester-long course or until the end of the year in a year-long course. Students who drop a course after the drop-add period are eligible for the honor roll if they still carry at least a five (5) course load.

Courses with fractional credit are weighed when determining the grade point average (G.P.A.) Honors courses receive one step in the G.P.A. as well as a step in the letter grade when determining honor roll status. Advanced Placement courses receive two steps in the G.P.A. as well as two steps in the letter grade. All credit-bearing courses are used in determining the honor roll status as defined below.

Maximum Honors – 3.67 G.P.A. and no grade below B
High Honors – 3.33 G.P.A. and no grade below B-
Honors – 3.0 G.P.A. and no grade below C+
Effort Honors – Effort grades of 2 or better in all courses
