The Howard School reports GPA on a standard 4.0 scale, but neither ranks students nor weights courses. Students must receive a grade of 70 or above in order to pass a course. Required courses not passed must be retaken in order to fulfill graduation requirements. Grades received in failed courses are averaged into the student’s GPA. The Howard School’s grading scale is synchronized with that of area schools and with the Georgia Student Finance Commission scale per determining eligibility for the HOPE scholarship.
