Evaluation System

Kindergarten to Grade 4 assessments are based on ongoing evaluations, while Grade 5 to 12 have systematic weekly quizzes (formative) and final exams (summative) at the end of term 1 and term 2. The school academic year is divided into two terms, with a detailed report card published on the student's portal after each term. The final report at the end of each academic year consists of the average of two terms. As an American school we are using the following conversion chart to convert percentage grade to letter grade. This chart is also used to calculate the cumulative grade point average for high school (GPA).
