Ch. 2: Grades Tell the Story

We invited recent Palo Alto LWS graduates (2011-2014) to share their high school and college grade point averages. The Palo Alto school is small, with 70-75 students in nine grades, K-8. We graduate, on average, 4-8 students per year; thus these 20 responses over four years are very representative.
