Academic Honors for MS
Students achieving the designated grade point average with no grade less than a D are placed on the Eagle Roll at the end of each of the two grading periods. For a student to receive the yearly Eagle Award certificate, he must have the necessary cumulative grade point average at the end of the second semester. No student who has been disciplined during the school year for a major offense, such as cheating, will be allowed to attend the Honors Banquet even if he has attained the necessary grade point average. Eagle Awards are presented to students who earn a cumulative grade point average of 3.80 for Gold or 3.20 for Silver on a 4.00 scale, with no grades less than a D. Grade point average is an average of the values extended to the hundredths place in the table below. There is not Honors credit for Fine Arts classes. G.P.A. calculations are not rounded.
