A=90-100 B=80-89 C=70-79 D=60-69 F=0-59 The NC State Board of Education approved a standard 10-point grading scale beginning the 2015-16 school year for all high school students. Grades from prior years were not altered retroactively.
A 4.0 grading scale is used to calculate a GPA, which determines a student’s class rank. Freshmen of 2015-16 and years after will receive .5 additional quality points for honors-level classes, while Advanced Placement and some special honors-weighted electives receive 1 additional quality point. For freshmen entering high school prior to 2015-16, they receive 1 additional quality point for honors-level classes and 2 additional quality points for AP and special honors-weighted electives.
