International Baccalaureate program. Its basically taking college-level classes in math, science, english, a language, history, and an elective. All of my IB classes this year will count for college credit if I score high enough on the exams. The classes are a lot more in depth than AP classes, and the end of the year tests are heavily based on writing, such as essays, to prove that you know the subject.

Our system is pretty simple, you get a certain number of points for your grade in each class:
A=4
B=3
C=2
D=1
F=0

And your GPA is the average of all your points- you just add them up based on your grade in each class and then divide by the number of classes. If you are taking an AP class, then you get 1 extra point added on to your total, so if you get a B in an AP class then it will have the same effect on your GPA as an A in a normal class.

I like that best of all the different ones I've seen. Mine's like it just without the extra point for harder (AP) classes which would be nice since I have a few of them.
