No school for students in grades 6-8

Traditionally, middle school students have been asked to take final exams in the four core subjects; ELA, Math, Social Studies and Science. As a middle school, we have encouraged flexibility since the beginning of this crisis to meet the needs of our students. With this in mind, all middle school core classes will be using the following process to calculate final averages:

  • Each of the 4 quarter grades will be used equally to determine a student's overall average

  • We will replace a student’s lowest quarter grade with their final exam score, if it helps the students overall average

  • Final exams will be given to all everyday and hybrid students in school. Virtual learners will have the option to take their final exams in school or at home

Essentially, no students' grades will be negatively affected by their final exam. This will give students the opportunity to show what they have learned this year without the additional pressure usually associated with final exams. If students are able to demonstrate a comprehensive understanding of the material and showcase such on their final exam, their average will be positively impacted.

This grading modification means that up to 50% of a students final average may still be determined based on their performance in the 4th quarter and our final exam. Students should keep up with their work this quarter and study hard for their final exams. This modification represents a great opportunity for all our students to show their understanding of the course material without any negative pressure.
