Grading Procedures

As per Board Policy No. 6012, progress report cards and semester grades will be recorded and made available through the Aeries student/parent portal.

High school courses are typically awarded five credits in each course per semester. Semester grades and credit are placed onto a student’s transcript. High school semester grade points will be calculated for courses on the following numerical value. Total points by total credits taken determine the grade point average (GPA). Each academic year has two semesters, Fall and Spring. Letter grades are issued as follows:

Mark Definition Standard Weight Advanced Placement Weight
A Very High Achievement 4 5
B High Achievement 3 4
C Moderate Achievement 2 3
D Low Achievement 1 1
F Failure 0 0
W Withdraw without penalty    
WF Withdrawal with failing grade, counts as an F in GPA calculation 0 0

Students can always submit their previous high school transcripts to the Universities for evaluation. Honors course are approved on a school-by-school basis by the University of California, therefore students who transfer into Laguna Beach high school with honors credits on their transcript may be subject to specific transfer policies in interpreting coursework from other schools.
