Non-IB Diploma candidates are enrolled in IB courses, must take at least two trimesters of TOK, and complete modified versions of the Extended Essay and CAS in order to receive the Americanaccredited AAS diploma. The core of the IBDP is referred to on the transcript as the “Senior Project.” Thirty-seven of the 39 students in the class of 2022 are seeking the full IB Diploma.

Grading System

Prior to the 2020-2021 Academic Year, students were graded on an A-B-C-D-F / 4.00 scale.
Starting in the 2020-2021 Academic Year, AAS switched to a 7-6-5-4-3-2-1 grading scale to more
closely align with the International Baccalaureate assessment and grading model.
The transcript will reflect both grading systems, and we have discontinued the calculation of GPA. Due to our small size, we do not rank.

Grade Distribution

Grades earned in first-year IB courses for the Class of 2022 in
the 2020-2021 academic year:

7 = 25%, 6 = 30%, 5 = 25%, 4 = 16%, 3 = 4%, 2 = 0%, 1 = 0%
