GPA and Class Rank
All student GPAs (Grade Point Averages) are updated at the end of each semester. At Magnolia High School, we calculate GPAs on a 5.0 weighted scale, which is the GPA used to rank students. All IB/AP/PreAP classes are weighted and based on a 6.0 GPA. Below is a chart that represents how GPA points are calculated.
Grades below 70 do not earn grade points.
|Grade in Class||Weighted 5.0 GPA points||GPA points earned in IB/AP/PreAP classes|
Students are ranked based on their ranking GPA. These rankings will be given to students at the end of each semester after the grades have been updated. Students will be ranked 8 times during their high school years.
