Quarter One Honor Roll Clarification

Good Afternoon,

In the December 10th edition of the Scituate High School Weekly News, the quarter one honor roll report was included. Since then, it has come to our attention that the criteria in which this report was run and the criteria printed in our student handbook is not accurate. The quarter one honor roll has therefore been recalculated based on the current honor roll policy which is printed accurately in our 2018-2019 program of studies. Linked below, please view the accurate quarter one honor roll.


Scituate High school will be forming a team of teachers, students, and parents to revisit our current honor roll criteria and ultimately propose a new practice for the 19-20 school year and beyond. If you are interested in providing feedback or serving on this committee, please be on the look out for a survey after the new year!


We apologize for the miscommunication and appreciate your patience!
