    Grading Scale

    All students in grades 3-12 will be graded on a 10-point scale. This means grades of 90-100 will be an A, 80-89 will be a B, and so on. This is different than the 7-point scale we use now.

     

    We want to give you important information about a new grading scale that began in grades 3-12 in 2015-16.

    All students in grades 3-12 are graded on a 10-point scale. This means grades of 90-100 will be an A, 80-89 will be a B, and so on. This is different than the 7-point scale we use now.

     
     New Scale    Old Scale
     2015-2016 and beyond    2014-2015 and earlier
         
     A  90-100    A  93-100
     B  80-89    B  85-92
     C  70-79    C  77-84
     D  60-69    D  70-76

    The N.C. Department of Public Instruction mandated the new 10-point scale for grades 9-12 starting in 2015-16. A local committee of teachers, principals and administrators recommended that the 10-point scale be used in grades 3-8 so that grades are consistent throughout the school district. 

    This scale will only apply to grades earned starting in 2015-16. All grades that students have earned in the past will stay the same.

    If you have any questions, please ask your teacher, counselor or principal.
