Grading Policy


The student’s grades are determined by the following breakdown:

Homework: 10%
Classwork: 35%
Projects/ Reports: 35%
Quiz: 10%
Test: 10%
International Baccalaureate rubrics will also be utilized in determining students’ academic progress.


Students will receive a variety of projects throughout the year.  A grading rubric will accompany all long term projects.  Each time a project is assigned the project and the rubric are fully explained. Parents and students should pay close attention to the value of each component to ensure that students will utilize their time wisely and maximize their ability to achieve a high-quality grade.  Students are given at least one full week once a project is assigned therefore if a project is turned in late students will lose 10 points for each day that it is late.  

Tests and Quizzes
Students are given prior notice of test and quizzes.  Students are provided with some type of study guide, sometimes the guide is a worksheet, and other times I have the students take notes, or highlight their notes in their binders.
