Class ranks

Does anyone understand how they figure class ranks? My daughter is a freshman so this is our first experience with it after this first semester. I just assumed it was done on gpa alone. Do they figure how many credits you have or the types of classes at all?

She's fifth in her class and her gpa is 4.19. She's taking a study hall and is wondering if not taking one next year will give her a higher rank because she'll have more credits.

I was debating calling her counselor but I felt stupid lol.

I believe they figure in the number and type of classes and in some schools even the extra-curricular activities.

 Errr ok I guess I need to call the counselor then.  She wants to have full knowledge of what's going on.  She's in Marching band and winter percussion.  She wants to do brain game but the tournaments coincide with band competitions.  She's in gifted English and Bio 2 and Algebra 2.  She can't take any higher classes lol. 

I thought it was straight forward  GPA.  I know my sister always hated it because in her words someone could take basket weaving 101 and she could take advanced calc but the grades had the same weight.

I'm glad its just gpa. It can get really complicated and unfair at some schools.
