Grade Weighting & GPA

Starting with the second semester of the ninth grade, a  Grade Point Average (GPA) appears on your transcript.  The cumulative GPA is the average
of all courses since the beginning of the ninth grade.  DVHS transcripts show the total weighted, unweighted, and College Prep weighted grades. To compute the weighted Grade Point Average (GPA):

  1. List each of the semester grades
  2. Convert the letter grades to numbers, as follows: 
           General Classes A=4, B=3, C=2, D=1, F=0
           Advanced Placement/Honors A=5, B=4, C=3
  3. Add all of the numbers
  4. Divide by the number of semester grades {P (Pass) or NM (No Mark) are not used in computing a GPA}
    Course Grade Points
    English A 4
    Spanish B 3
    Honors Social Studies  C 3
    Art A 4
    AP Math B 4
    Science C 2

       5.  20 /6 = 3.33 weighted GPA
