    STUDENT RANKING

    Central High School does not rank students. Rank is reported in terms of deciles. All courses are averaged into a student's grade point average. Honors and AP classes are weighted. An additional three (3) points are added to the final class average for Honors classes and five (5) points are added to the final class average for Advanced Placement Courses.
