Grading System and Report Cards

Horizon East is in the process of moving to a 0-4 grading scale. The goal with this grading scale is to transition the grading philosophy from a summative judgment of how students did on one particular assignment to a focus on the learning process. The focus will be how students are growing in their knowledge of the content standards over the course of a unit, quarter, and school year through direct formative feedback from the teacher. By emphasizing the learning process, students will be engaged in learning the content rather than focused on getting a good grade on the assignment or exam.

Horizon West will provide four written standard-based progress reports each year. The standard-based progress reports will be similar in format to the elementary level.

Shortly after the end of each quarter, student report cards and progress reports will be posted on PowerSchool under “Student Documents.” Parents/guardians are encouraged to use PowerSchool to obtain grade and attendance information about their child’s progress at school. PowerSchool access codes are available in the school office.

Students who fail classes at Horizon East are expected to attend opportunities for credit make up; opportunities may be offered on Saturdays and/or during the summer to make up core class credits. At Horizon West, students are invited based on need to be part of our Excel program to help support academic success. The Excel program takes place during the school year and in the summer.
