GRADING SYSTEM

VSGIS grades on a four-point scale. The school will use a variety of measures including classroom and standardized measures to document the success of its students.
Teachers will assign letter grades to students. The following letter grades will be used for regular classes:
  • A+
    =
    98.0+
    =
    4.0
  • A
    =
    94.0-97.9
    =
    4.0
  • A-
    =
    90.0-93.9
    =
    4.0
  • B+
    =
    87.0-89.9
    =
    3.3
  • B
    =
    83.0-86.9
    =
    3.0
  • B-
    =
    80.0-82.9
    =
    3.0
  • C+
    =
    77.0-79.9
    =
    2.3
  • C

    1.3
  • D
    =
    63.0-66.9
    =
    1.0
  • D-
    =
    60.0-62.9

    =
    00.0-59.9

HONOR ROLL

To reward and encourage academic excellence among VSGIS students, an honor roll is published at the end of each semester. Students earning a 4.00 GPA are placed on the Principal’s List. High Honor Roll is extended to students with a semester GPA of 3.80 to 4.00. Honor Roll will be given to students who receive 3.71 to 3.79.

INDEPENDENT PRACTICE (HOMEWORK, PROJECT)

Independent Practice is an extension of classroom learning; it reinforces classroom instruction and is essential for academic success. Students are expected to complete independent practice properly and on time. The amount of independent practice will vary with the grade, subject, and student work habits. Parents are encouraged to communicate with their students to ensure that independent practice is completed and up to date. Ultimately, the responsibility for meeting independent practice demands rests with the student.
