Students receive a grade on their report card each quarter, and this grade, like other academic subjects, becomes part of the student’s overall average.For 8th grade singers, grades are divided into two categories:
60% collaboration and rehearsal skills
40% exam scores and graded assignmentsFor 6th and 7th grade singers, grades are divided into three categories:
50% collaboration and rehearsal skills
