class rank Schools & Kids, posted by A Gunn parent, a member of the Gunn High School community, on Feb 21, 2012 at 10:58 am
I am a new parent, and I don't know how the school give out class rank for the students. It seems they are ranking the students based on both weighted and unweighted GPA. Is this correct? I know a lot of competitive schools have already eliminated class rank because this doesn't help the student in the college admission game and only increases stress. I know there are a lot of stress for being a student at Gunn (and Paly). Why the schools cannot eliminate the rank to help reduce stress?
