    Grading

    Webster Groves High School has a Weighted Grade  Policy. Courses designated as weighted courses will use  the following scale:

    A+=4.5
    A=4.5
    A-=4.5
    B+=3.875
    B=3.375
    B-=3.375
    C+=2.75

    C=2.25
    C-=2.25
    D+=1.5
    D=1.0
    D-=1.0
    F=0.0

     

     In non-weighted courses, this 4.0 scale is used:

    A+=4.0
    A=4.0
    A-=4.0
    B+=3.5
    B=3.0
    B-=3.0
    C+=2.5

    C=2.0
    C-=2.0
    D+=1.5
    D=1.0
    D-=1.0
    F=0.0

    Note: Honors grades could be an option in certain non-weighted courses. Students must be approved for this rigorous challenge and grades will be awarded based upon stringent guidelines outlined by faculty members. Appropriate department chair approval is also required. H=4.5.
