Grading System

It is the belief that grades earned by students at ISG Jubail should…

  • reflect learning by the student
  • not be used as a disciplinary measure
  • be a tool for communication to parents, other teachers and schools
  • not be based solely on participation or attendance, although these issues can influence learning
  • grades earned represent standards of learning and hard work

The Early Years program provides narrative assessments to describe achievement. Elementary achievement is measured against curriculum standards along a continuum of development. Middle and High School grading follows a standard American grading system utilizing lettered grades to indicate achievement (A, B, C, D and F).

Read more about our grading system in the Student Handbook, available on our Policies & Forms page.

Standardized Tests

To hold ourselves accountable to high educational standards, ISG Jubail School measures student learning on a consistent basis. In addition to curriculum based assessments such as end of unit tests, project based learning, and weekly tests, student learning is measured through the MAP – Measures of Academic Progress – testing for students in grades 1-10. All students in these grades take formative assessments in math, reading, and language usage.
