High Expectations for All
At U‐32, we strive to be a learning community that promotes commitment to personal growth. We believe in a cooperative and collaborative spirit that brings together students, parents, guardians, and school personnel to work toward shared goals and offers rich opportunities for all students to achieve their personal best. We encourage each parent, guardian, and student to be active participants in this shared endeavor.
U‐32 uses a letter grading system when reporting quarter, semester, and final grades. The following grading system is used at middle and high school levels:
A+ 97‐100 A 93‐96 A‐ 90‐92
B+ 87‐89 B 83‐86 B‐ 80‐82
C+ 77‐79 C 73‐76 C‐ 70‐72
D+ 67‐69 D 63‐66 D‐ 60‐62
E below 60
The following notations are also used when reporting grades:
P = Pass
F = Fail
W = Withdrawn
WP = Withdrawn Passing
WF = Withdrawn Failing
I = Incomplete
H = Hold – grade to be assigned
If a student receives an incomplete grade ("I"), it means that the student was unable to meet the course requirements in time to receive a grade. Students who receive incompletes are given an opportunity to complete the required work. All incomplete grades must be made up within two weeks of the close of the semester. If a student fails to make up the required work in the time allotted, the "I" will change to a failing grade.
HIGH SCHOOL AND MIDDLE SCHOOL HONOR ROLLS
All students are encouraged to strive to achieve their personal best in all classes. In an effort to recognize those who pursue excellence, U‐32 has four honor rolls. At the conclusion of each marking period, a student may qualify for one of the following:
Highest honors: Marking period grades are all A's.
High honors: Marking period grade average is A‐ with no grade below a C‐, and a minimum GPA of 3.67.
Honor roll: Marking period grade average is B or better with no grade below a C‐, and a minimum GPA of 3.00.
A = 4.0 A‐ = 3.67 B+ = 3.33
B = 3.0 B‐ = 2.67 C+ = 2.33
C = 2.0 C‐ = 1.67 D+ = 1.33
D = 1.0 D‐ = . 67

- 5.5 credits to be a sophomore (10th grade)
