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,... show more 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.
