From my experience, each letter grade has a value that is considered for the GPA. At my old school and current university of to (A+, a, a-) is worth 4pts. B=3, C=2, D=1, F=0. So no, A don't spoil anything. ex: 4 a, 2 B and 1 C for the sake of example! A+A+a+a+B+B+C -Or- 4+4+4+4+3+3+2 =24 you have a total of 24pts, divide it by the number of classes (7). 27/7 =3.4 GPA Seven, if they are+ or - it will be a GPA of 4.0. Then, again, the district could be different; their teachers must know, or you may ask a counselor or look for in a school agenda/handbook. I hope this helps!
