TEENS: Does an A- count toward straight A's?

Like can you still say you have straight A's even if you have some A-s.

I got my report card today:

AP English: A

Honors Anatomy: A

Math: A

Honors Spanish 5: A

SAT English: A- (NO!)

Honors History: A- (I hate the minus!)

Computer:A

So just wondering if when people say they have straight A's, do they really mean ALL perfect solid A's? Or just in A grade range?

I'm happy yet disappointed. My mom looked at my grades and said, "Well too bad. You were close, but just couldn't quite make it all the way...."

Update:

My school DOES NOT give out A +'s...only A's and A-s.

    It should.

    Whether it's an A- or an A+, they are just different variations of an A.

    Sure does. Your mom is kind of harsh! lol My mom got so happy when I brought home straight A's, regardless if they were high A's or low A's.

    an A- in my school is just a lower A, it's still an A, still a 4.00 GPA...

    If I was you, I would be terribly happy about that report card. You got superior honor roll. You are one smart cookies with all the Honors classes and the AP classes you're taking. An A minus is still an A. I just think that it's in the lower range between a 90 to about a 92 or 93 percent if I'm correct.

    An A is still an A. No matter if it's minus or plus

    Let's see.

    An A is a 3.6-4.0. An A- is a 3.6. So it would be an A, and it would be excellent.
