Adams proudly recognizes our students for their academic achievement with our Honor Roll Award. We recognize students who have successfully earned a GPA (grade point average) of a 3.0 and higher.
Q: How are students recognized?
A: Students are given a certificate in March to recognize their academic achievement.
Q: What is the difference between Honorable Mention, Honor Roll and Principal Award?
A: The specific award is determined by a student's GPA (grade point average)
|Honorable Mention||3.0 - 3.49|
|Honor Roll||3.5 - 3.74|
|Principal Award||3.75 - 4.0|
Q: Which grades are calculated for Honor Roll?
A: We calculate semester 1 grades to determine Honor Roll for the school year. Semester 1 grades include assignments and assessments from the first week of school to the last day of semester 1, which typically ends in late January.
*For 6th graders in the elective wheel: We use their final 2nd quarter elective grade.
Q: How are GPA's calculated?
A: We take your student's total grade points and divide by the number of classes he/she are in. For example, if your student has 6 classes plus advisement we divide by 6.3. If your student takes 7th period PE plus advisement we divide by 7.3.
|English Language Art/Honors||1.0|
*Advisement classes are worth 0.3 of a point.
Q. Why is Advisement not worth a full point like other courses?
A. Students are not in Advisement classes the same amount of minutes as their other classes.
Q: How many points is each letter grade worth?
