Raising Grades Before Progress Reports

Grades are among the topmost concerns of students across the world, especially those in honor programs such as International Baccalaureate Diploma Program or Advanced Placement courses. At BSGE, students of all ages, from the newer 7th graders to the older MYP and IB candidates are aware of the critical role grades play in a student’s educational career. As we are now approaching the second marking period of the second semester, students are focusing on raising their grades before progress reports, and, eventually, before final report cards.
