The Gunston School recognized 150 students for earning High Honors and Honors for the first quarter of the 2020-2021 academic year. To earn a place on the High Honors list, a student must have a 93 percent or above and effort grades of satisfactory, “S” or above. To earn Honors, a student must achieve an 88-92.99 average and effort grades of “S” or above.
“Gunston students have worked very hard in and out of the classroom, online and offline, during our phased reopening of campus this fall,” said Dean of Students Mark Wiening. “We are all very proud of their individual academic achievements, as well as the Gunston Together mindset that has enabled the majority of our community to come together and stay together on the physical campus in these opening months.”
