We have a unique situation and are looking for advice. My DD attended a large public high school (approx. 3000 students) her freshman and sophomore year. She was enrolled in all available Pre AP and AP courses and received quality points in those courses. Her class size at the time was approximately 750 students. She was offered the opportunity to transfer to a public IB high school at the start of her Junior year, which she accepted. This school has been nationally recognized by several well known periodicals, and is ranked in the top .0017 of all public high schools in the US. Academics are extremely competitive, 100% acceptance to upper tier universities and a class of top students. The IB school does not recognize quality points for transfer students, which has negatively impacted my DD GPA by 2.5 points. The school calculates GPA out 3 decimal places (9x.xxx) to provide sufficient grandularity between students. The school does not rank students other than to determine the Valedictorian and Salutorian. USMA admissions did require the guidance counselor to submit a percentile ranking,and my DD is in the top 30% of her class and her graduating class size is approximately 50 students.When comparing her placement with the Profile for the Class of 2016, 72% of the entering class were in the top 20% of their class. We beleive this may negatively impact on our DD's application. Any insight or advice is welcomed.
