Grading Policies

You’ll begin the year with an A and are expected to maintain that A all year long.

How?

Easy: Try your best, don’t give up, learn from your mistakes, and play by the rules.

That’s all there is to it.

No homework. No tests. No finals. No loopholes. No tricks.

You’ll also earn your choice of perks for maintaining that A.

Who Are You?

Parents, guidance, and VP have been notified of your willful defiance.

When your grade falls to an F, you are in imminent danger of removal from our class.

Any Questions?

Persistent, consistent effort in a collaborative, self-paced, student-centered learning environment leads to the highest level of success a student can achieve in a given subject.

The quality of your work is not a factor so long as you’re maintaining an A.

If you don’t give up, your work will continue to improve.

Patience, Grasshopper, give it time and your work will shine.
