ACADEMICS AT CERRO VILLA
STEPS FOR SUCCESS
Have a positive attitude.
Be willing to share and cooperate.
Behave in a way that exemplifies school pride.
Strive for the best grades possible.
Be an outstanding student.
To alert and inform parents and students, progress reports are sent home at the halfway through of each trimester. These progress reports do not become a part of the student's permanent record. However, progress reports do serve as an official warning that there is an immediate need for scholastic improvement. If parents need more information regarding the problem, they should immediately contact the classroom teacher.
Grades and student progress can be checked anytime using Parent Portal and/or Student Portal.
Completing homework is an important part of a student's educational experience. All CV students are expected to complete every homework assignment for every class. Failure to complete all assignments will result in a lower grade.
Honor roll eligibility is based upon a point system and is computed each trimester.
- A = 4 points
- B = 3 points
- C = 2 points
- D = 1 point
- F = 0 points
All subjects count equally. Students are recognized each trimester for Honor Roll. Students with a GPA of 3.0 to 3.499 will receive Honor Roll recognition. Students with a GPA of 3.5 to 4.0 will receive Principal's Honor Roll recognition.
GPA is a Grade Point Average. Each grade is given a point value. To find your student's GPA, add up your points and divide by the number of classes.
|A-, A, A+||4|
|B-, B, B+||3|
|C-, C, C+||2|
|D-, D, D+||1|
GPA = 4+2+3+3+4+3+1= 20
20 divided by 7 (classes) = 2.8571 which equals = 2.86 GPA
Please Note: Honors course grades are non-weighted.
