ACADEMICS

QUALIFICATIONS, GRADING SYSTEM & DISTRIBUTION

 All students must complete the local national Lise Diplomasi (High School Diploma) requirements of the Ministry of Education and if they are successful, they are awarded the Lise Diplomasi upon graduation in Year 13 (US Grade 12). This diploma awards them a high-school CGPA out of 10: 9-10 being excellent, 7-8 good, 5-6 satisfactory and 4-1 unsatisfactory.

In addition to the above requirement, students choose and complete one of the two international curriculums: UK GCE A-Level programme or the IBDP.

Ranking: We do not provide students with a class rank.

Cumulative Grade Point Average (CGPA) Calculation

CGPA is computed using the above grades and subject weightings. Beginning with grade ten through thirteen, all subject grades, whether passed or failed, are included in the computation. A minimum cumulative grade point average of 5 is required for graduation. In addition, each student must complete a 150-hour community service graduation requirement. Yearly GPA and grades are recorded on the interim transcript, CGPA is computed in June of Year 13 (US Grade 12) and recorded on the final transcript and the Lise Diploma (High School Diploma).
