Do these classes receive high school credit?
Advanced English and advanced social studies do NOT receive high school credit. Advanced science DOES receive high school credit. The grade for the science class will appear on the high school transcript and will be included in the high school GPA. A low grade in 8th grade advanced science will have a negative impact on the high school GPA. There is not an option for advanced science that will prevent the grade from impacting the high school transcript.
It is important to note that 8th grade advanced science is both compacted and advanced. As a compacted class, it combines both 8th and 9th-grade science content into one year. As an advanced class, it goes deeper into the content than both the 8th and 9th-grade science courses. The 8th-grade advanced science class covers much more material in much less time, and the grade impacts the high school transcript.
