Academic Honors Program

To receive a letter for academic achievement from Montgomery County R-II High School, a student must have a yearly grade point average of 3.70 or higher with no quarter or semester “F”.  Each student must also meet citizenship requirements and a 95% attendance requirement. (This may be appealed to the Principal.) Students qualifying for academic honors will receive a Montgomery County season pass.  The qualifications for each grade level are as follows: 
 
FRESHMEN:  Must receive a full credit in an upper level in each of the four core curriculum areas. 
 
Language Arts I American History Algebra I, Geometry Physical Science 
 
 
SOPHOMORES:  Must receive a full credit in an upper level class in each of the four core curriculum areas. 
 
Language Arts II World History Algebra I, Geometry, Algebra II Biology I 
 
 
JUNIORS:  Must receive three credits in upper level classes in any of the core curriculum areas and one additional credit in either upper level practical and/or fine arts, or the core curriculum and be enrolled in a minimum of 6 units. (See Counseling Department for approved list of upper level fine arts and practical arts courses)

SENIORS:  Must receive three credits in upper level classes in three core curriculum areas and one additional class in either upper level practical arts, fine arts, or the core curriculum, and be enrolled in a minimum of 6 units.

The academic letters will be awarded on a yearly basis.  Seniors will have their grade point average and attendance percentage figured after fourth (4th) quarter grades of their senior year.  Every other grade will be figured after the fourth quarter grade has been given as well.  In the future, if upper level classes need to be added to any of the areas, they will be added to this list.
