Bainbridge High School is the district’s only comprehensive high school serving approximately 1,375 students in grades 9-12. Students at Bainbridge High School have access to a challenging college preparatory curriculum that is augmented by a rich and diverse array of elective classes. Our range of course offerings and co-curricular programs exceeds the options available at virtually any other public school our size.

Grades and Class Rank Policy
All grades, by state mandate, are not weighted. All courses, except those denoted with a “P,” “W,” or an “NC” are calculated into a student’s cumulative GPA and class rank. Students are not ranked until the completion of their junior year. In light of the highly competitive nature of our school and the academic success that most of our students enjoy, a Grade Distribution Chart has been provided to put class rank in the proper perspective.
