What is a High School Transcript?
A high school transcript is a record of your academic accomplishments in high school. It lists every class you took, when you took them, and the grade you received in each class. It also includes additional information such as standardized test scores.
There are two versions of your high school transcript: official and unofficial. The two versions will look identical in terms of content, but an official transcript will be sealed in an envelope. This is so officials reading the transcript can be certain no changes were made to it after it was released by the school. An unofficial transcript, used for a student's personal use, will have an "unofficial" watermark across it.
An example of a high school transcript is found below:

Carl Junction High School does not have weighted classes. Credit is issued only at semester. Students enroll in eight classes using block scheduling. Days alternate between Red (blocks 1, 2, 3, 4) and White (blocks 5, 6, 7, 8) with homeroom at the end of each day.
Attendance Regulations: In addition to the specific academic requirements of each class, students must maintain a 90% attendance rate. If attendance falls below this mark, a grade of "W" may be issued. Students may miss no more than four (4) days from each block per semester. Policy exceptions may be granted for extenuating circumstances to be determined by building administration.
