A high school transcript is a record of all your academic accomplishments in high school. It lists every class you took, when you took them, the grades you received, and the credits you earned. Your transcript also lists both your weighted and unweighted GPAs.
High school transcripts are part of the college admissions process. Many scholarships, jobs, and internships also require a copy of high school transcripts as part of the application. Transcripts give college admissions officers, scholarship reviewers, and employers an overview of the academic performance of students.
A grade point average (GPA) is the sum of all course grades throughout a student's high school career divided by the total number of credits.
The Cobb County School District has set the following grading scale:
A = 90-100
B = 80-89
C = 74-79
D = 70-73
F = Below 70
Cobb County transcripts list both unweighted and weighted GPAs but do not list HOPE GPA.
