Hey, just wanted some opinions on our school's valedictorian issue.
We think our current valedictorian-to-be does not deserve his rank. His non-weighted gpa is a 3.5--the only reason he is our valedictorian is because he has taken over 10 physical education classes at our local college which are considered to be weighted under our grading system, thus raising his overall weighted GPA--which is the GPA our school uses to determine the class's rankings.
Is this allowed? Is it possible that he can just be valedictorian just because he has stacked up his weighted classes? He practically has 10 Bs while our salutatorian has 1 B in all the same classes. We've all practically killed ourselves with APs and honors to get the A grades we have, and he is putting in less effort than we are.
