Class Rank and Valedictorian/Salutatorian
Due to the diversity of educational experiences, a student in the UHS program is not ranked in comparison to other SCHS students, which means they are not eligible to be considered for Valedictorian or Salutatorian. UHS students will receive a GPA (both unweighted and weighted) which can be reported to colleges.
The UHS transcript reflects traditional credits based upon completion of a SVVSD accredited course or college concurrent enrollment. These credits are assigned at the end of the semester and are based upon grading protocols approved throughout the district. Additionally, students can earn Learning Units based upon proficiency levels. Learning Units will be designated on the transcript by a “UHS” proceeding the course description. Learning Units are not bound by time, but will be transcripted in the semester that they are completed. Learning Units may be completed through Independent Study, Online courses, or Original Study. Personal/Career Exploration and Applied/Service Learning will also be designated as “UHS” coursework and are required for graduation.
