Honor Roll and Your GPA

Honor Roll: Students who earn a 3.5 or higher Grade Point Average (GPA) on their Semester Report Card automatically qualify for Honor Roll. There is no application to complete.

Students who maintain an Honor Roll GPA (3.5 - 4.0) during each semester they attend SEMS will receive a President's Education Awards Program Outstanding Academic Achievement Award at our SEMS 8th Grade Promotion ceremony.


How to Calculate Your Grade Point Average (GPA)

Your grade point average (GPA) is calculated by dividing the total amount of grade points earned by the number of classes taken. Your grade point average may range from 0.0 to 4.0.

A = 4 grade points
B = 3 grade points
C = 2 grade points
D = 1 grade point
F = 0 grade points

  • Plus (+) and minus (-) have no value (A, A+, A- each = 4 grade points)
  • P/NP (Pass/No Pass) courses are not factored in a student's GPA.
  • I (Incompletes) and W (Withdrawals) do not receive grade points and do not have an effect on the GPA.

To calculate your GPA:

  1. add your grade points
  2. divide the total by the number of classes in which you received a letter grade
