GPA Calculation

1. Write out your grades into numbers using the chart above
2. Add up the numbers for all the classes you took
3. Divide the total number by 7 (number of classes you took)

Ex)

English                                        B    =   3.0

Algebra                                      C-   =   1.7

Geography                                  A    =   4.0

Environmental Foundations          B+  =   3.3

Fitness for Life                            C    =   2.0

Introduction to Art                      B-   =   2.7

Music Exploration                       D+  =   1.3

3.0 + 1.7 + 4.0 + 3.3 + 2.0 + 2.7 + 1.3 = 18

18 / 7 (# of classes) = 2.57 -- GPA
