So just yesterday I got the news that I'm in the first quarter at my school, we're all receiving reports on this because we're taking the ACT soon and it's required information. Apparently I've been in the first quarter ever since the beginning of High School. The First Quarter means that I am in the top 1/4 of students at my school gradewise. It got me wondering what quarters everyone here might have been in. First Quarter (Excellent) Second Quarter (Good) Third Quarter (Fair) Fourth Quarter (Poor) That's usually how the system looks. What quarter were you in? Did you care about high school or did you just go with the motions and get through it? My GPA has gone up since my 3.5 Freshman year to the 4.0 that I have now.
