Communicating Via Google Drive:


Sending Google Documents via Gmail and Apex


As a student with MySchool@Kent, you'll need to adhere to some of the following rules and expectations: 


  • Check your email everyday for information and communication from staff
  • Plan to login to APEX everyday to work on your courses! Allow for about 1 hour for each course (ex: 6 courses, 6 hours / day)
  • Students will not use outside resources, or Google when testing or working on courses


Students will see their courses completed with MySchool@Kent on their transcript at the end of the semester/grading period. 

Our grading scale** is as follows:

A 93.5 - 100
A- 89.5 - 93.4
B+ 87.5-89.4
B 83.5-87.4
B- 79.5 - 83.4

*Students must take the final exam on-site in order to earn credit in the course, regardless of completion. Students who have completed 60% or more of the course, but have not taken the final exam will not earn a passing grade

**The grading scale at your sending school may vary. Ultimately they have final say on grade and credits earned
