    • Category II: High honors - at least 3.6 weighted GPA. Students must take at least six credits in honors courses during their school career. At least one credit must be earned during the senior year.

    Academic lettering requirements 

     

    Students will be recognized and be awarded an academic letter in fall. Students earning a letter will have a cumulative weighted GPA calculated at the end of the previous school year.

    The GPA standards are as follows:

    • 3.90 for freshman (presented fall of grade 10).
    • 3.85 for sophomores (presented fall of grade 11).
    • 3.80 for juniors (presented fall of grade 12).
    • 3.75 for seniors at the end of trimester 2 of their senior year* (recognized at the senior honors ceremony in May).

    * = This will be denoted at commencement.

    These are the district standards for academic lettering. Students need to meet the GPA requirements exactly. There is no rounding of student's GPA.

    Class rank 

    High schools in the Anoka-Hennepin School District base GPA calculations on a 4.0 system. Both weighted and unweighted GPA are calculated. Class rank is a reflection of GPA. It is a composite of all students' GPA. As GPA changes, so do class ranks.
