GPA and Class Rank

GPAs

All student Ranking GPAs (grade point averages) are calculated at the end of each semester.  At MWHS, we calculate Ranking GPAs on a weighted 6.0 scale.  All IB/AP/Pre-AP classes are provided an additional weight due to the rigor of the courses. Below is a chart that represents how a student's Ranking GPA is calculated.

Student GPAs are also calculated on a College Unweighted 4.0 GPA scale. This GPA includes ALL courses a student takes to earn High School Credit (this includes Dual Credit, Summer School, etc). On a College Unweighted 4.0 scale, advanced class credits are not given additional weight. Below is a chart that represents how a student's College Unweighted 4.0 GPA is calculated:

CLASS RANKS
