       77 - 79  = C+ 73 - 76 = C 70 - 72 = C-

       67 - 69  = D+ 63 - 66 = D 60 - 62 = D-

                    59 and below F

AP Chemistry is listed as an honors course, therefore students will be graded using the following grade-point scale.

      A = 5.0 B = 4.0 C = 3.0 D = 2.0 F = 1.0

No food or drinks will be allowed in the classroom or laboratory at any time. Students will not be permitted to leave the class for any reason other than an emergency.
