Any upper school courses taken in the eighth grade year (such as Algebra I or Foreign Language) will be listed on the upper school transcript; however, the grades earned in these courses will not be included in the cumulative upper school grade point average or in the class rank. Eighth-grade credits will not count towards the graduation requirements.
All students must take six courses per semester.
Any student who receives a D or lower for the second semester grade in English, Algebra I, or the first year of foreign language is required to attend summer school in order to improve his or her grade since the fundamental grasp of the subject is considered insufficient to proceed. A student is not eligible for summer school if the course semester average is less than 50; the course must be completely retaken. All summer school courses must be approved by the Academic Coordinator prior to enrollment.
