Valedictorian/Salutatorian Selection Process

Class of 2015 and Beyond

Ranking for graduation exercises for high honor and honor status* will be taken from the top 20% of the 12th grade class at the end of the 3rd quarter of the senior year. Selection will be based on the following criteria:

 GPA (minimum 3.5)

  • ACT composite score divided by 9
  • Academic courses (4 points maximum)

 Academic courses are defined and valued as:

 Concurrent Enrollment courses = .5 point

  • EdNet courses = 1 point
  • MHS courses: Physics, Chemistry, college level math = 1 point

 The student with highest total of GPA, ACT divided by 9, and Academic points rounded to the nearest 1000th will be named the valedictorian. The student with the second highest composite total of GPA, ACT, and Academic points rounded to the nearest 1000th will be named the salutatorian. If two or more competing students have equal and highest scores following the tallying of points to the nearest 1000th each will be honored as co-valedictorians. If two or more competing students have equal and the second highest scores following the tallying of points to the nearest 1000th each will be honored as co-salutatorians.
