EMS Grading

At Ellington Middle School we believe the purpose of grading is to provide students, parents and teachers feedback about how students are meeting academic standards and curriculum goals. An effective grading system gives students, parents and teachers information about:

  • How well a student is meeting the academic standards for the course/subject;

  • How a student’s work habits and study skills impact their performance in meeting those standards;

  • How and where a student can grow to strengthen their skills on both academic goals and work habits.
