At East High School, student excellence is based upon academic achievement, continuous improvement, and a life-long love of learning. Distinction is awarded to students who excel academically. The primary indicators of student achievement are the honor roll and class rank.
Honor Roll is determined at the end of the first quarter, end of the first semester and of the third quarter, and the end of the second semester. To qualify for the consideration for honor roll, a student must be enrolled in a minimum of five qualifying courses for the given grading period.
Additional criteria for Honor Roll:
High Honor Roll: 3.5 and no grade lower than B 18
Honor Roll: 3.0 to 3.49 and no grade lower than C
Honorable Mention: 2.75 to 2.99 and no grade lower than C
Honor rolls for each quarter of the school year are available in the left-hand column.
Class Rank and Senior Honors
For the purposes of awards, including but not limited to, Valedictorian, Salutatorian, and top 10%, class rank for seniors will be based upon the completion of seven semesters, as well as senior status. Class rank for this purpose will be calculated two weeks following the end of the seventh semester to allow for the submission of incomplete grades and grade error changes.
