Grading Policy

Orlando Gifted Academy uses the Orange County the following grading scale for all regular and compacted curriculum:

  • A - 90 to 100%
  • B - 80 to 89%
  • C - 70 to 79%
  • D - 60 to 69%
  • F - below 60%

Each grade level has the option of determining how a student's overall grade for their class is calculated, whether it be total points or by weighing specific categories of work.  Students of OGA will basically have two report cards as usual in the world of gifted.  However it is important for everyone to understand how the two relate as not everyone performs on a gifted level in everything.  The grades on the OCPS report card are only for assignments within the scope and sequence of your child's actual grade-level.  You will see additional enrichment grades for "above grade-level" activities in Skyward that only count toward the gifted report that parents receive inside their child's OCPS report card.  The gifted content does not count toward your child's report card grade.   

If you have specific questions you can log on anytime to Skyward and check your child's grade or by directly contacting your child's teacher through phone, Class Dojo or email.  Email generally tends to be the most efficient means of communication and a response is generally given within 24-48 hours.  Please call ahead to make a conference appointment if you want to discuss your child's progress more in depth.
