Report Card and Portfolio Information

Grades TK-5 Reporting Information

Students in grades TK-5 are graded on a standards-based rubric, specific to each grade level. These students will receive a report card each trimester.

Students receive grades on a scale of 1-4 for each standard in English-language arts and math. They receive one grade for each course on the same scale for science, social studies, and PE. Students are also graded on their overall success as a learner. This section covers standards such as “follows oral directions” and “communicates needs and feelings.”
