  赴美国留学,须知美国中学课程设置与评分体系:

  1、Basic curricular structure必修课

  English语言 (usually four years minimum, including literature, humanities, etc)

  Physical education 体育(at least one year)

  2、Electives(选修课)

  Common types of electives include:

  Publishing (journalism/student newspaper, yearbook/annual, literary magazine)

  Foreign languages (Spanish, French are common; Chinese, Latin, Greek, German,and Japanese are less common)

  3、高中GPA 举例

  GPA,就是grade point average,学业平均成绩。A=4,B=3,C=2,D=1,F=0,每门课的各个任课老师给出学年ABCD后,学校把整个高中的所有科目的成绩都平均起来,得到一个值,叫做unweight GPA。

  因为学校有不同等级的课,AP补助2分,Honor补助一分,regular没有补助,最后,再把这些所有补助的分数加起来,除以15,得数加到unweight GPA上,得到一个值称为weight GPA。每个学校不同,我们学校就是用weight GPA排名(class ranking),所以导致了选课的竞争。

  4、学期、假期、考试

  其他要点:

  一年三个学期:9月初-12月中旬;1月初-3月初;3月下旬-6月初

  4个假期:X’mas, Thanksgiving, Spring break, Summer vacation
