Class Rank Policy, Grading Scale and Course Weight

Class Rank Policy

Phoenixville Area High School does not report class rank. Class rank is not listed anywhere on the student's report card or on the student's transcript. 

For student's knowledge, class rank can be provided to them as a decile rank in increments of ten: top 10%, top 20%, top 30%, etc.

The only exception is for valedictorian and salutatorian. These students will be informed if they are #1 or #2. These two students will be informed at the end of the 3rd marking period of their senior year.

In the event that a college, scholarship or other entity requests an exact class rank, the student will provide the contact information and the counselor will report this information directly to the school or organization as needed. 

Grading Scale

90-100 A               W = Withdrawal
