What is a good high school GPA?

Answer

As grade point averages are calculated differently in different high schools, determining a good high school GPA is difficult. However, over 50 percent of applicants to UCLA had a 4.0 high school GPA or higher.

High school GPAs can be calculated on a weighted or unweighted scale. On a weighted scale, honors courses and advanced placement courses can exceed the maximum 4.0 weight of a standard high school course. While a 4.0 may mean straight As at one high school, it may mean As and Bs with weighted courses at another. Many high school schools offer cum laude honors for students with a 3.75 GPA, making a 3.75 a reasonable benchmark for a good GPA.
