## Grading Policy

Interim progress reports are issued at the midpoint of each marking period showing the students’ positive efforts and/or as a reminder that the student is making unsatisfactory progress and may be in danger of subject failure. Report cards are issued at the end of each marking period and will reflect numerical averages, not letter grades. The numerical grade is equivalent to the following letters listed below:

A+ 97-100
A 93-96 A- 90-92 B+ 87-89 B 83-86 B- 80-82 C+ 77-79 C 73-76 C- 70-72 D+ 67-69 D 63-66 D- 60-62 |
