K-5 Report Cards
The purpose of our elementary report card, aligned to the California State Standards, is to communicate student progress toward meeting end-of-year grade level standards. This document has been prepared to assist you in understanding the reporting of your child’s progress. Implementation of the CA State Standards in Hermosa Beach City School District will enable our teachers to focus more intently on instilling within our students both a deep conceptual understanding of academic content and mastery of essential skills. The standards, as evidenced by the report card, emphasize not only the importance of students learning but the importance of students demonstrating their learning.
These report cards are designed to be a tool for both teachers and parents to communicate regarding grade level expectations and student progress toward them. We encourage you to utilize this tool to understand how you can support your student's learning and how we can work together to ensure that we provide the highest quality educational experience we can envision.

HBCSD uses traditional report card grading for middle school students. 
  • Grades are given for each subject area.
  • Grades reflect an averaging of scores to determine a percentage aligned to a letter grade.
  • Students’ scores are derived from combining assignments, tests, quizzes, and participation.
