Academic Standards

 Academic Review

If a student earns a grade of 'C-' or below in two or more courses at mid-semester or at the end of a semester, she will be considered on Academic Review.

A student on "Academic Review" and her parents will meet with the Upper School Director and her advisor to determine an appropriate course of action, which may include supervised study and extra help sessions with her teachers. If a student is placed on Academic Review for three or more quarters, her re-enrollment contract may be reviewed and may be held by the Upper School Director and the Head of School.

Conduct in Testing Environments

The purpose of an exam, test, quiz, or other assessment is to evaluate a student's command of a topic. Students need a proper working environment to demonstrate your knowledge. Students must respect their peers during assessments by arriving on time and avoiding any distracting behavior.

Inappropriate behavior during assessments is a serious breach of  academic standards, and will result in disciplinary action, and may be referred to the Honor Council. If such behavior compromises an AP exam,  the student will be dismissed from the exam immediately,  and will not be allowed to take additional AP exams until the student and her parents meet with the Upper School Director.

Incomplete Course Work

An incomplete grade 'I' will be recorded only when a student is unable to complete course work as a result of serious illness, accident, or family emergency. If missing work is completed within six weeks into the semester/quarter immediately following (or within the time designated by the teacher, not to exceed six weeks), the teacher will issue a final letter grade replacing the temporary 'I' designation. If the work is not submitted by the appropriate deadline, the student will receive an 'F' for the missing work, and the final grade will then be averaged and recorded. The six-week time limit may be extended only through written consent of the Upper School Director in response to a written request initiated by the student/parent and co-signed by her academic advisor.
