Weighted Grades & 10-Point Grade Scale
Introducing the new SVHS
Beginning with the 2015-2016 school year, Stillman Valley High School will use a 10-point (90, 80, 70, 60, 50) grading scale for all high school courses.
No grades prior to the 2015-2016 school year will be adjusted based upon this new scale.
The use of a weighted grading scale applicable to all Advanced Placement (AP) and Dual Credit Courses (Including Articulated Credit) will be implemented with the incoming freshman Class of 2019 and all subsequent classes.
A review of grading systems used by local high performing high schools with similar demographics and nationally recognized high schools in Illinois was conducted to determine common denominators in grading scales among these prestigious schools.
