Grading System

The School Year

The school year is divided into two semesters, and each semester is divided into three six-week grading periods. Students receive report cards at the end of each six week period. Classes meet five days a week, and one unit of credit is assigned for each course that meets one period a day, five times a week.

Weighted Grades

The weighted grade concept is designed to encourage and reward students for attempting a more rigorous academic curriculum. Grades are weighted in designated courses by adding points to the numerical six weeks average. Honors classes will receive three points (enabling a student in an Honors class to obtain a maximum six weeks score of 103). Honors courses include Biology II, Chemistry II, Pre-Calculus, Calculus, Physics, Advanced Algebra/Trig, Honors English III, Dual Enrollment U.S. History, Virtual Enterprise and Dual Enrollment English IV.

*The Weakley County School System and Westview High School, along with the academic, social clubs, organizations, and the Career and Technical programs will not discriminate against any student on the basis of race, creed, color, handicap, national origin, sex, age, political affiliation, or beliefs.
