Transcripts

Students in grade 10 – 12 receive an updated high school transcript each fall from their guidance counselor. Students should keep this copy handy throughout the school year for their needs. Seniors will receive a seven semester transcript after the semester one grades are checked. Current students should see their guidance counselor for any questions about their transcript.
