Will My Middle Schooler Pass?

We have all experienced it before – the fear that our child will be held back. But there is a way to keep track of your student’s progress throughout the year to ensure their passing.In Middle School, students must earn a minimum of 4 points in each of the following “core” subjects for the entire school year:
  • Language Arts (English)
  • Mathematics
  • Social Studies
  • Science

Here’s how the points are broken down:

LETTER GRADE

NUMBER OF POINTS

A

4 POINTS

B

3 POINTS

C

2 POINTS

D

1 POINT

F

0 POINTS


Students receive points at the end of each quarter for their classes. These points are then added up at the end of the year and must equal 4 points or more in order to pass.

Read these sample situations to see if your child is on the right track:

  • It is possible for a student to get 4 D’s in each quarter of the school year for a particular class and still pass.
  • It is also possible for a student to get an A in a particular class in the first quarter of the school year and get F’s for the last 3 quarters and still pass.

**Note: Students who are failing and/or fail up to two of the four core courses (English, Mathematics, Science, and Social Studies) will be given the opportunity to meet the requirements of the course(s) through regular school day or extended learning opportunities.
