Weighted Grades

The EVSC utilizes a system of weighted grades to encourage students to enroll in the most rigorous academic courses in order to maximize preparation for their post-secondary education.

  • Advanced Placement (AP) and International Baccalaureate (IB) courses are on a 5.0 scale.
  • Most AP/CC/IB are year-long courses, so students must take the full course to receive weight.
  • Students must take corresponding AP/IB exams to receive the weight.
  • Concurrent college credit courses with EVSC approved final exams are on a 4.5 scale.
  • Students must earn the transcripted college credit to receive the weight.
  • Weighted and unweighted GPAs are provided on transcripts.
  • Multiple credit courses are given weight for one credit per semester. The weight is given by course, not by credit.
  • EVSC no longer uses Class Rank.
