Good morning. I wonder if the community can help with a question concerning class ranking? My son's graduating class is only about 100 students. His gpa is 3.76 on 4.0 scale, and 94.02 on 100 point scale. This includes all classes taken. However, his class ranking is 31 out of 100. All of his electives have been honors classes in science, math, and social studies. In fact, he will have exhausted all those classes at his school by graduation time. Not all students elected to take these higher level classes as electives, instead choosing more mainstream electives (not honors level). My question is this - how can his less than stellar ranking be explained in relation to other students in his graduating class? He also was 1 of 4 students recognized by National Merit Scholarship.
