Final Grades In AP Classes

Final grades in college level AP classes will not be adjusted because the student was “close” to the next higher grade. As the course info packet states clearly:

No grade adjustments are made for students who are “close” to a particular grade. So an 89.99% grade is a B+ grade, and will not be “rounded up” to an A- grade.
Grades reflect mastery of course content, not the effort expended by the student. Plan ahead, track your grade closely, and work to earn the grade you desire

Beyond this statement, I have scaled every quiz all year to assist students attain their next higher grade and I have provided an extra credit project each semester to assist students reach the next higher grade. In short, I have done my part already to assist every student in “moving up” to the next higher grade.
