At Lipscomb Academy, we are researching and working toward a grading and reporting system that will more clearly communicate the academic status of a student.  We are exploring the best way for the academic or “achievement” grade to clearly communicate what a student knows and is able to do as measured by a student’s achievement of academic standards adopted and developed by Lipscomb Academy.  In fifth grade we will also use our Homework Code and Process Grades to more clearly communicate other areas valued by our school, such as work ethic, participation and responsibility.

Progress Reports and Report Cards:

  • Report Cards: This year your child’s report card will be online. You will be notified when reports cards are ready to view.  
  • AB Achievement and Principal's List: These lists are determined at the end of each grading period. For the AB Achievement List, students must have made as many A's as B's in the academic subject areas and have no grade lower than a B-­. Principal’s List is all A’s in academic subjects.
