Honour Roll Criteria

Point Grey Secondary School's honour roll acknowledges students in grades 10, 11, and 12 for their outstanding work habits and academic excellence.  The annual honour roll is published for grades 10 – 12 in the spring and is based on both first and second semester courses. There are three levels of honour roll at each grade. There is no honour roll for grades 8 – 9.

There are three honour rolls presented:

  • Greyhound Effort Roll
  • Honour Roll
  • Principal’s List

GREYHOUND EFFORT "GE" ROLL CRITERIA

The Greyhound Effort Roll recognizes students based on their good work habits.  In order to receive this distinction, students must have perfect "G" and/or "E" work habits in all subjects on their report card.

HONOUR ROLL CRITERIA

To receive Honour Roll recognition, a student must attain an average percentage of at least 80% in all qualifying subjects.  A percentage of less than 60% in any subject means elimination from the Honour Roll.  C-, I, or F in any subject means elimination from the Honour Roll.

Students must take at least six qualifying courses. (Five courses or less does NOT qualify.)

Non-qualifying courses include: Career Life Education 10; Learning Strategies 10-12; Library Service 11; Community Service 11-12; Peer Tutoring 12; Business Administration Assistant 12; Career Life Connections 12; online courses; and ungraded courses.

PRINCIPAL'S LIST CRITERIA

Based on the same Honour Roll Criteria above, the top 10% of each grade will receive the distinction of Principal's List.

HOW TO CALCULATE YOUR HONOUR ROLL STANDING

First and second semester marks must be used and combined.  Total your percentages and divide by the number of subjects.  If your average is 80% or higher, you should be on the Honour Roll List.  If a course is excluded from the honour roll, such as Community Service, then do not include this course in the calculation.

For example:

Step 1: Calculate your total percentage points as follows:

Step 2: Divide the total by the number of eligible subjects studied.
 
        663 divided by 8 subjects = 82.875
 
Step 3: This is your AVERAGE (82.875). If the average is between 80%-100%, then honour roll status has been achieved. Principal's Lists status will be awarded to students who are identified as the TOP 10% of each grade.

HONOUR ROLL CERTIFICATES OF RECOGNITION

Students who qualify for Honour Roll during the current school year will receive a certificate of distinction at the annual awards ceremony in June.  Students who qualify for Principal's List will receive a special certificate of distinction with a Principal's List Gold Seal.

Students with general questions about the honour roll are asked to speak to their counselors.  Ms. Chan also assists with the running and accuracy of the honour roll list.  If you believe that there is an error in your honour roll standing, please speak to Ms. Chan
