Our Marking System
St. George’s issues letter grades with plusses and minuses. A grade of B or better is considered an honor grade. To qualify for the Honor Roll, a student must have an average of B or better, with one grade of C+ allowed as long as that grade is in an honors or advanced course; all effort marks must be at least satisfactory; students with a four‐course load must have an average of B or better, with no grade below B‐.
D- is the lowest passing grade. A student who fails a required course and who is allowed to re- turn to the school must take the course again, usually in summer school. A fifth-former may not re-turn for the sixth-form year with an outstanding failure. Sixth-formers must pass all their courses during their sixth-form year in order to graduate from St. George’s.
Grades are as follows:
