There are several ways to rewrite this to make is clearer.  I'll show you two.

 

I have a target in every of my classes to always get good grades, and it is worth putting in the extra effort.

 

I have a target in every of my classes, and my target is to always get good grades.  It has been worth putting in the extra effort to learn more.

Lewis has overlooked another problem. You cannot say "every of my classes." It needs to be either "every one of my classes" or "each of my classes."
