I'm a freshman in high school and I was wondering if these are good grades for the first semester? Will this give me a good overall GPA?

Thank you all!

If I have an 89 in a 6.0 class, an 87 in a 6.0 class, a 78 in a 6.0 class, a 100 in a 4.0 class, an 80 in a 6.0 class, a 96 in a 4.0 class, and an 87 in a 6.0 class for a semester, is that good?

I would say that this is a good first start to your high school career. You have a B+ (high 80) average. The transition to high school can be difficult. So, if you are doing this well and you keep up your efforts, then I suspect that you will only become stronger.

There is also room for improvement, especially in your third class (78).  I would also say that a good habit to get into is to seek extra help from your teachers, if you do not understand something. Do not let things pass without learning them.

Finally, keep in mind that consistency is better than doing a lot at once. If you can keep consistent with your academic work, then you will fare very well.
