    GPA

    The following chart provides the numerical equivalent to letter grades and how the

    weighted grade compares to a standard weighting. Honors and AP classes all use the

    honors calculations while all other classes utilize the standard calculation. The weighted

    GPA is based on a 4.0 scale with weights assigned to classes based on the difficulty of the

    class.

    Letter grade Standard AP/Honors A+ 4.33 4.83

    A 4.00 4.50

    A- 3.67 4.17

    B+ 3.33 3.83

    B 3.00 3.50

    B- 2.67 3.17

    C+ 2.33 2.83

    C 2.00 2.50

    C- 1.67 2.17

    D+ 1.33 1.83

    D 1.00 1.50

    D- 0.67 1.17

    F 0.00 0.00

    For the graduating classes of 2020 and 2021, the top ten is calculated after 8 semesters of schoolwork for

    recognition of high achievement at graduation. GPA is determined by utilizing grades received in all courses in

    grades 9 – 12, except for pass/fail courses. GPA is determined by total grade points divided by the total number

    of classes taken.

    Beginning with the class of 2022, MTHS will use the Latin system to recognize honors students. Ou
