The Honor and Merit Rolls at Sandusky Middle School are computed using a grade point system.

HONOR ROLL: students who qualify for the honor roll must have a minimum 3.2 grade point average. A student’s grade point average is determined by the following process: assigning number values (A=4, B=3, C=2, D=1, F=0) to each grade; finding the sum of the grades for the quarter; dividing the sum by the number of eligible courses. The result will serve as the student’s grade point average.

The credit/value given each course will be based upon the number of weeks that course meets, (i.e., classes meeting five days per week for the entire school year will have a value of 1.00. Classes meeting only for nine weeks will have a value of 0.25 credits. Classes meeting for 12 weeks will have a value of .33 credits.)

Example: English A = 4 x 1 = 4
History B = 3 x 1 = 3
Science A = 4 x 1 = 4
Math A = 4 x 1 = 4
Art B = 3 x 0.25 = 0.75
Health A = 4 x 0.25 = 1.00
Honor Roll - 4.50/16.75 = 3.722

MERIT ROLL: students who qualify for the merit roll must have a minimum 2.77 grade point average.

The value given each course will be based upon the number of weeks that course meets. (i.e., classes meeting five days per week for the entire school year will have a value of 1.00. Classes meeting only for nine weeks will have a value of 0.25 credits. Classes meeting for 12 weeks will have a value of .33 credits.)

Example: English A = 4 x 1 = 4
History B = 3 x 1 = 3
Science C = 2 x 1 = 2
Math C = 2 x 1 = 2
Art B = 3 x 0.25 = 0.75
Health B = 3 x 0.25 = 0.75
Merit Roll - 4.50/12.5 = 2.77- Merit Roll

Honor Roll - The Sandusky High School Honor Roll is computed at the end of each nine weeks grading period. Students earning a 3.2 or better receive an Honor Roll certificate for the respective nine weeks grading period. When computing the honor roll, grades are given the following value: regular courses: A=4, B=3, C=2, D=1 and F=0; advanced placement (AP) courses: A=5, B=4, C=3, D=2, F=0. A student must have an average of 3.2 or better to be on the Honor Roll with no grades lower than a C. A student must have a 4.0 or higher G.P.A. to be on the Principals’ Honor Roll with no grades lower than a C.
