  • What GPA is top 10% in Frisco ISD high schools?

    Approximately what GPA number qualifies for the 10% rule in Frisco ISD these days? I understand that the exact number changes year over year based on the student make up but I am curious about the ballpark of what we are working with here. Will 3.5 be in top 10? Will 4.0 be in top 10? (I have heard a couple of years ago that in Plano it was higher than 4.0).

      My daughter has a 3.5 & she isn't in the top 10....her boyfriend has a 4.0 & he is in the top 10. Not much help for you but may give you an idea. I think it's crazy that a 3.5 doesn't get you the top 10!

      I never would have made it going to school nowadays!!!

        It depends on the school, but DD's school's top 10% ranges from a low of 4.78 to about 5.6.

              I just don't get the GPA scale over 4.0. I don't think AP or Honors or GT should have higher scale. Put everyone on 4.0 scale and be done with it.

                Absolutely.

                  I disagree. Since there is college admittance consequences to class standing in Texas, those that do the more challenging class when they don't have to should be rewarded with the extra points.

                    I don't think kids should have kids who get better grades than those with lower scores. Everyone should get the same. Then the same grades in college and the same pay for lilfe.

                    Out with the 1 percent!!!!!!!

                        You do realize you can still do that and keep it on a 4.0 scale. It was done where I went to school and it can be done now.

                          I went to high school in Texas and took AP and Honor classes. I got same points toward GPA for A as anyone else. Funny thing is most of kids graduating at top of class were ones in my class.

                          To me higher scale is same as trophy for all idea. Overbearing parents.

                            If you are looking for automatic college acceptance for Texas, it is top 8% now I believe.

                              Grade inequality is not fair!

                              Spread the grades!

                              Those with higher grades should pay more in tuition....pay their fair share

                              What are Julia's grades?
