School Officials Consider New GPA System
Under the new system, all grades, regardless of class difficulty, would be of uniform value.
School officials are considering a new approach to grade point average at the high school, which would align all grades regardless of class difficulty.
The high school currently values grades in honors level classes higher than grades in lower-level classes, according to Boston.com. Under the new system, an A in either class would be worth the same.
Superintendent Bella T. Wong told Boston.com that the change is in the “discussion phase.”
“I think it’s healthy for the community to look at policies and evaluate them from time to time,” she said in the story. “It really just came up this year.”
