How to Calculate Your Child's GPA

  • How to calculate an East Middle Quarterly Average:   

    Not every class is weighted the same amount in Middle School.  Classes are weighted based on the length of the course, with full year classes being weighted a full 1.00.  Generally, if a class is running every other day, then it is weighted at 0.50. 

    Below is an example of how to calculate your child’s quarterly average.

     

    Class        Q1 Average         Weighting             Calculating Average

    Chorus              95                     0.50                          47.5
