Stamford Public Schools (SPS) believes in recognizing students who demonstrate significant academic achievement through hard work and commitment. The district recently established a consistent designation of honors across all three high schools and at the Alternative Routes to Success (ARTS) program.
To earn honors in a marking period, a student must be taking a minimum of three credits in that marking period. There are three levels of Honors:
- Honors with Distinction: Straight As (includes A and A-)
- High Honors: All As with the exception of one B (includes B+, B and B-)
- Honors: All As and or Bs with the exception of one C (includes C+, C and C-)
All course grades are included in the calculation for qualifying of Honor Roll. Honor Roll status will be indicated on report cards quarterly.
