10th Gr Networking: The Academic Roadmap

Understanding GPA and Naviance

Tuesday, Nov 9 | 9:30 AM

Please join us so we can answer all of your sophomore-related questions! 

Guidance counselors Cynthia Rivera and Nick Willett will discuss many topics, including: the Power School GPA and how it converts to a 4.0 scale; how Honors and AP classes are weighted; what GPA colleges see and care about; and how many AP classes a child should take. They will also show us a roadmap to our students' academic pursuits and introduce Naviance, which you will use during your child's college search. 

This meeting is not to be missed, but if you do, it will be recorded!

EVENT LOCATION:  Virtual via zoom. Link to follow.
