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