Grades, grades everywhere...

Don't Fail...
Getting good grades throughout middle school and high school will drastically help you when applying for a college. Most colleges will not want a failing student but an A-B student.

Your grades in sixth grade immediately start affecting what classes you will be taking in high school. For example, if you get excellent grades in sixth grade, and get placed in advanced classes for 7th and 8th grade, you will probably be recommended for honors classes in high school. Taking honors level classes in high school, will help you get ready for AP (advanced placement) classes, and those will help your GPA (grade point average) credits.

In elementary school you are probably used to being able to turn in late work. In middle school, it all depends on the teacher and grade level. In sixth grade the teachers may be easy on you and let you turn in a few things late. As you get older, most teachers will just give you a 0. So, make sure your work is turned in on time!!

Projects are normally a huge part of your grade. They vary in difficulty. Teachers will usually give you a long period of time to do them; so, make sure you keep on track.


Completing your homework, scoring high on tests, and keeping up with your grades are the keys to success when it comes to school. GOOD LUCK RISING SIXTH GRADERS!!!
