Grading System



Shawe Memorial strives to create an atmosphere conducive to high academic achievement and personal growth. This atmosphere provides an opportunity for students to meet their individual potential and to develop healthy relationships and appropriate behaviors that ensure academic success. Each student is expected to make the most of his or her God-given talents and abilities. Students are to set high, but realistic goals for themselves, create a plan to achieve those goals, and to consistently work towards the meeting of their own academic goals.
