Grading Information

Class Rank

Class rank is a student' s cumulative class standing based on GPA in grades 9 through 12. Rank is computed at the end of each year and at mid-year for seniors. Wyomissing Area's system for computing GPA offers little advantage for high-ranking students to take additional courses for the purpose of increasing their GPA's. Examples of calculating a GPA are available in the counseling office as well as the Program of Studies course selection book on the internet. The seventh semester class rank is used for determining the valedictorian and salutatorian. Third quarter grades are used for awards such as the Thelma Brunner Stabb.

Note: Only with the final grade of all A or B, AP courses have a weighted grade of .25 and Honors courses are weighted .2.

Report Cards

Students will receive their report cards in school with the expectation that they will take the responsibility of presenting them to their parents or guardians. Parents, therefore, need to make note of issue dates so that they can anticipate receiving this information from their child. See school calendar for dates for the end of quarters 1, 2, and 3. Final report cards will be mailed in June.
