What is a High School Grade Point Average?

First off, what exactly is meant by a “grade point average”? A GPA is a standard way used to measure academic achievement in the United States. Every course is given a certain amount of “units” or “credits”, based on the content of the course. Most high school classes carry the same amount of units. GPA assumes that the grading scale is A, B, C, D, F, with each grade assigned a certain number of points.


Why is the High School GPA so important?

This is a very good question! A student’s GPA is a good indicator of how hard a student has worked and how much they know. It will also show where their strengths and weaknesses are and if they need extra help before continuing to more advanced classes. A student’s GPA can affect their success when applying for colleges or even their prospects when looking for work after high school graduation.
