Question

I'm in 11th grade and I have a gpa of a 4.002. I just started a journalism class for the last
two cycles of junior year. We took a test and I completely failed. She gave me a F which
currently says 0 on PowerSchool and she has not added any other grades yet. Will it be
possible to raise the grade to at least a B by the end of the cycle?

Talk with your teacher and ask for a retest.

She told me that I will not be able to take a retest. Will I still be able to bring my grade
up?

I think your teacher is being unreasonable and probably unprofessional in refusing to give you a retest. Whether you will be able to get your grade up to a B depends on her grading and assessment policy and how well you perform on subsequent assessments.
