GPA & Student Rank


Burlington High School operates on a traditional 4.0 grading scale, with A (100-90) equal to 4 points. Class rank is based on a non-weighted grading scale and is figured at the conclusion of each year with extra points  awarded (**points added at the end of senior year) for the following:

AP classes = 1 point

Honors classes = .5 point

Project Lead the Way classes = .5 point

Over 48 credits = 1 point per credit**


Class rank will determine valedictorian and salutatorian. The following is an example of the process.
