Because we are a Christian school and dedicated to teaching the truth of God’s word and his ways throughout our curriculum, we choose courses of study that challenge our students, as well as help them to see godly principles in all areas of learning. The method of study is quite varied and students will learn through a variety of media. In most cases, students will participate in class instruction as directed by classroom teacher.
Examinations are part of schooling. They are a way of evaluating a student’s progress. The surest way to demonstrate progress is by consistently applying conscientious, effective study techniques.
Parents are encouraged to check RenWeb daily to review academic activities and grades. Any test with a D or F grade will be sent home and a parent signature will be required. The test copy must be returned the next day. Parents who wish to view tests not sent home can make an appointment with the teacher to visit the school and do so. In some cases, pop quizzes provide an effective method of determining student progress and may be included at the teacher’s discretion.
Nine-week tests are taken in grades 7-12. Information to be covered is announced by individual teachers. Each exam constitutes 200 points of the student’s final grade.
Teachers will keep copies of student work on file until the first week of the upcoming school year. Students or parents who choose to contend with the grades earned must do so no later than one week after the final report card of the given school year.
All grades are recorded numerically and placed on the report cards and transcripts as letter grades.
- 93-100= A
- 0-69=F (failing)
- 0=F (cheating on test/quiz/assignment)
A Honor Roll Each subject for the period has a letter grade of an A.
