What do grades mean at RHS?
Grades communicate individual student academic achievement in relation to course expectations to our students, their families, employers, and post-secondary institutions.
- Grades reflect student academic achievement.

- At the start of a course, students and parents will be provided with information regarding grading practices and expectations.
- Summative evidence will constitute the majority of a student’s grade.
