    COMMUNITY

    The township of Tonawanda, a community of 75,000 residents is the most immediate northern suburb of Buffalo, New York.  Because of this location, Tonawanda residents can easily take advantage of the cultural and recreational activities of the city as well as those in the Kenmore-Tonawanda Community.  Most of Tonawanda is residential with a heavy concentration of industry along its western border (the Niagara River).  The current school enrollment (K-12) of the Kenmore-Town of Tonawanda School District is over 7,000 students.

    GRADE POINT AVERAGE

    In computation of high school grade point average, grades are weighted to reflect the difficulty of the course work. To determine the weighted final grade, class averages are multiplied by the following weighting factors:

    Course:                Regents                                 Honors                               AP & IB

    Weight:                      1.00                                   1.05                                     1.10
