Ich habe so etwas wie "Notenhilfe" nachgedacht aber wusste nicht ob es so ein richtiges Wort auf deutsch gibt--wie in den amerikanischen High Schools.

Explanation:
Geht es um Arbeitsverhalten und Sozialkompetenz?

Das wird im Zeugnis unter 'zusätzliche Bemerkungen' vermerkt.

Wenn man also, z.B. in Geschichte und Mathe mittelmäßig ist, aber Talent zum Organisieren hat, oder dass man nicht nur mit allen anderen gut auskommt, sondern auch fähig ist, Streit zu schlichten, usw.,

sind das wichtige Fakten für Berufswahl und Karriere.

Explanation:
Extra credits in the USA usually means that you take courses in addition to the prescribed curriculum for the selected course of studies, so as to gain extra credits. I German this is more generally refrred to as "Zusatzstudium", i.e. additional studies, without specific reference to credits, points or notes.
