Does P.E. class contribute to high school GPA?

I was just wondering, does participation in gym class actually count towards your overall high school GPA? Or is it considered separate from your academic grades? Any info would be much appreciated!

This is a great question! Whether a P.E. class contributes to your high school GPA typically depends on your specific school's grading policy. At many schools, P.E. does indeed contribute to your overall GPA and therefore can impact your academic standing. However, some schools may consider P.E. separate from your core academic grades and not include it in the GPA calculation.

To find out how your school treats P.E. grades, I would recommend reaching out to your school counselor or checking your school's academic handbook. It is essential to have a clear understanding of how your school calculates GPA, as colleges will look at this metric when reviewing your admissions application. Good luck!
