High School Grading System: 100 Point Scale

I was wondering what other high schools do as far as 100 point scale to letter grade to 4.0 scale conversions. Do any high schools have a harsher grading system than mine?

At my high school:

A =95-97 =3.8
A- =93-94 =3.6
B+=90-92 =3.3
B =87-89 I'm not sure after here what it is on a 4 point scale
B- =85-86
C =80-82
C- =77-79
D =72-74
D- =70-71
F =Below 70

I know that the conversions don't really matter for college, but it certainly looks worse. Oh, and we do weight grades… one whole point on a 100 point scale for an AP class. As you might imagine, our top 10% is filled with people who barely take any honors or AP classes.

    No... Mine gets 4 points for A's, 3 for B's, 2 for C's... No such thing as D's.

    Oh well... have fun.

    A 94-96
    A- 95-96
    B+ 92-94

    I don't remember it.. but it's like.. anything below 85 is C and D..

    We're slightly below... a 4.0 is a 96.

    I heard there was one school where an "A" was a 100.

    There's a reason why colleges redo GPA - most high school GPA policies suck.

    Grading at my school is completely inconsistent. In one class, 96+ is A+. Another, 99.99999999 is still just an A. One class rounds up 89 to A-. Another, 89.999999 is still a B+.
