Top 10% Notification
Changes to the GPA and ranking system for students have been approved by the PISD Board of Trustees and will take effect with the class of 2023. There are some elements of the new policy that are being implemented for current 9th and 10th graders.
- GPA is available to students at any time. Rank in class will now be made available to students at the following times:
Early fall of the 11th grade year
January of the 11th grade year
June of the 11th grade year
Early fall of the 12th grade year
January of the 12th grade year
End of the 3rd 9 weeks grading period of the 12th grade year
- There have been no changes made to the weighting of courses or the method for calculating GPA or rank for students currently in grades 9 - 12.
- The lowest GPA in the top 10% of the last graduating class will be made available each spring in order to assist students and families with determining possible placement in the top 10% of their class and potential eligibility for automatic admissions to Texas public colleges and universities.
The lowest GPA in the top 10% of the 2018 class from Plano Senior High School was 4.146.
If you have questions about GPA, rank in class or Texas Automatic Admissions requirements, please contact your student’s counselor.
