Ranking and GPA
Shelton does not rank its students. GPA is cumulative, calculated on a 100 point weighted scale. The passing mark is 70%.

The GPA does not include physical education and athletics courses with the exception of Foundations of Physical Fitness.

Students earn five quality points in Honors courses. Quality points are added to semester grades for GPA calculations but are not included in raw semester grades shown on transcripts. In addition, students earn five fewer points for Modified courses. (Honors courses were not offered prior to the 2013 - 2014 school year.)
