Honors Level Selection
Honors course level selection is taking place this week. If you would like to take a course for honors credit please let your teacher know by Friday, September 9th.
MTRS has 3 levels of coursework, College Prep, Honor, and Advanced Placement. Grades are weighted based on the level of course a student takes. Students are then ranked according to their weighted cumulative grade point average at the end of each semester. Below is an explanation of the grading system and class rank.
Grading System and Class Rank
Grading System and Class Rank
Courses are weighted when computing class rank and GPA. See the chart below. Class rank and GPA includes all students in their core academic areas only: English, Math, Social Studies, Science, and World Languages. It does not include courses taken at the local community college; that GPA stands separately. The placement Level and the associate Grade Point Value are listed below.
Independent Study courses and courses taken outside of Mohawk Trail, including online, Greenfield Community College, or correspondence courses, are not considered when GPA (Grade Point Average) is calculated.
Credits are earned by completing classes with a passing grade and credit is awarded at the end of each semester. (Credit for yearlong courses such as AP courses is awarded when the course is completed.) A semester is one-half of the school year. Semester one is from late August to mid-January, and semester two is from mid-January - June.
