Grading Policy

Grades Represent Progress & Growth...

 

Tarrant High School's Grading Policy is as follows:
 

FINAL EXAMINATIONS

At the end of each quarter, final examinations will be given in all subjects. Exams are weighted 20% of the quarter grade unless other calculations are approved by the administration and clearly stated in course syllabus.


HONOR ROLL

Two categories will determine those listed on the honor roll:
  * All A Honor Roll – All grades must be an 90% average or above
  * A/B Honor Roll – All grades must be a 80% average or above with at least one grade being an A

An incomplete in any course will make a student ineligible for any honor roll. 
All students are eligible for the honor roll in every nine-(9) week grading period.
