A student's grade is composed of periodic graded assignments, station work, group labs, individual labs, quizzes, homework participation, and common assessments. Our school has adopted the mindset of Failure is not an Option! Students will be given the opportunity to bring up unsatisfactory grades by redoing and returning assignments. To get the new grade, scores will be averaged.

What are common assessments?
A common assessment is a test to measure student performance. Common assessments are given at the end of each unit. These assessments are the same across the grade level and are similar to the SOL.
