Batavia High School believes that a student’s grade should reflect their acheivement. Students will receive a letter grade at the conclusion of each course. Students enrolled in honors or Advanced Placement courses will receive an additional GPA point. All teachers update grades by the 15th and 30th of each month.
Students at Batavia High School are graded on a traditional A, B, C, D, F scale with a four-point GPA scale. GPA is calculated at the conclusion of each semester and class rank is determined at the end of the school year.
While students are graded on their academic achievement, students and parents also receive feedback on classroom behaviors and responsibility. While these behaviors are not graded, we believe that constructive feedback should be given. This feedback is called our Learner Profile. (Scroll down for more detailed information.)
Finally, more of our courses are moving toward a dual-reporting system of both letter grades and standards-based grading. We feel that this gives students and parents a more detailed account of areas of strength and areas for improvement. The standards-based grades, along with Learner Profile ratings, can be found in PowerSchool on the “Standards” tab of the “Grades and Attendance” page.
