    End of Course Examinations (EOC) and ACT

    The state of Missouri requires students to complete an EOC for English, Math, Science, and Social Studies prior to graduation. EOCs comprise 10% of the student’s final grade in that course. Additionally, the district may choose to administer the ACT to juniors, in which case it will be required for juniors to take the ACT; however, it will not count as part of the final grade in any course.

    Grading Scale and Letter Grade Equivalents
    Weighted grade points differentiate between regular courses, honors, advanced placement courses, dual credit, and other courses that have been approved by the Board of Education and are associated with the weighted grade scale. Weighted grade points are inflated by one point if the student earns an A, B or C in a weighted course.

    Honor Roll=GPA 3.333 and above for the current semester

    Graduating with Honors

    Every senior who has a cumulative grade point average (GPA) of 4.4 or above at the end of their eighth semester is considered a valedictorian.

    Every senior who has a grade point average (GPA) above 4.2 but below 4.4 at the end of their eighth semester is considered a salutatorian.

    Seal of Biliteracy

    The Missouri Seal of Biliteracy (SoBL) and Distinguished Missouri Seal of Biliteracy is awarded to graduating high school students who have demonstrated achievement in English, a Language Other Than English (LOTE), and sociocultural competence. All Missouri students studying any of the world’s languages are potential Seal candidates.

    The Seal of Biliteracy encourages students to pursue biliteracy, honors the skills our students attain, and can be evidence of skills that are attractive to future employers and college admissions offices.
