GICC GRADING SCALE
F: Below 70
Our individualized education is best reflected by our advance-placement sequences in both Mathematics and Science. As the only school in our area encompassing both middle and high school on the same campus, GICC is able to offer advance-placement on-site beginning in middle school, and continuing through a student's senior year.
