FACULTY & STAFF DIRECTORY

Grading System

Bishop Lynch High School uses a numeric grading system on a 100-point scale. Credit is awarded for a semester grade of 70 or above. A semester consists of two nine-week quarters. Students may receive a “final pass” for earning a 77 or higher in the spring semester following a failure in math, foreign language and chemistry courses only.

GPA Conversion to 4.0
90 – 100+ = 4.0
80 – 89 = 3.0-3.9
70 – 79 = 2.0 – 2.9
0 – 69 = 0-1.9

Weighted Grades, Class of 2018-2020
All numeric grades earned in a particular class are weighted by the following factors:
AP/Advanced/Honors = Numeric Grade x 1.07
High = Numeric Grade x 1.03
Regular = Numeric Grade x 1.0
Essentials = Numeric Grade x .95

Weighted Grades, Class of 2021+
All numeric grades earned in a particular class are weighted by the following factors:
AP/Advanced = Numeric Grade x 1.07
Honors = Numeric Grade x 1.05
Regular = Numeric Grade x 1.0
Essentials = Numeric Grade x .95

"BL provided endless opportunities for me to achieve nearly anything I wanted. I excelled academically while simultaneously succeeding in athletics and still having time to spend with friends. I could not have asked for a better place for me to grow academically, socially and spiritually, and I am grateful for all the wisdom I will take into the next steps of my life."
