Typically a weighted GPA scale ranges from 0 to 5.0. This is to accommodate grades in AP or Honors courses, where an A on the weighted scale translates to a 5.0 based on the difficulty of the class. Low-level classes maintain the typical unweighted scale, where an A translates into a 4.0. Therefore, students who maintain an A in their coursework, could end potentially earn a GPA that exceeds a 4.0.
