Weighted Grades

Weighted Grades

 

ZCHS recognizes and rewards academic rigor through a weighted grading system. Students who participate in AP, honors, and other select courses may earn additional quality points  if their grades are C- or higher.  Courses with a weighted designation will earn either a full point or a half point.
