Student & Staff Recognitions

Student Honor Rolls

Student honor rolls are calculated at the end of each marking period for grades 3 - 12. Courses in which students receive a numerical grade and earn credit is used in determining the honor roll. The honor roll is based on the average a student achieves each marking period.
