Grading Scale

The reporting system at Schaumburg Christian School is designed to give parents and students an indication of the academic progress which is being made.

Preschool—Kindergarten

Elementary, Junior High, and High School

In the elementary through high school, students are evaluated in both their academic subjects and  their conduct. Academic grades are based on the quality and accuracy of homework, quizzes, tests, exams, projects, etc. and these grades become a part of a student's permanent record. The citizenship/conduct grade informs parents regarding the student's behavior and the degree of cooperation and effort displayed.

Academic Grading Scale:

A 100-96 A- 95-93
B+ 92-90 B 89-87 B- 86-84
C+ 83-81 C 80-78 C- 77-75
