New Student Information

Welcome to the New Student Information Page! This page provides everything new students need to be ready for school in the fall.

NEW STUDENT CHECKLIST

Mathematics & Foreign Language Placement Assessments

The first step toward a successful year is to make sure all newly enrolled students are placed in the appropriate level mathematics and foreign language classes. In order to do so, we ask all students to take assessments. These assessments do not affect students’ standing with the school. Rather, they ensure students begin the year in the classes most suitable to their current mathematics and foreign language skill levels. There is no foreign language placement assessment for students entering the 5th grade.

Students entering 5th grade do not take math placement tests. Because we accept students from many different schools, Course 1 exposes students to a variety of different math curriculums. We use Course 1 as an opportunity for students to learn, review, and hone the key math skills they will need for Course 2 and Pre-Algebra. This includes an emphasis on the problem solving skills needed for solving word problems. If you have any questions, please e-mail placement director Pattie Bank at pbank@altamontschool.org.

Each list indicates what book is required reading and how many additional books from the list are to be read before school begins. Each reading list will be updated mid-May, so be sure to review if you have printed a list prior to these updates. Reading Lists

Summer Math Packets

Each student is to complete the summer math packet for the math course he or she will be entering in the fall. The Course I math packet is optional. All math packets can be found on the right side of this page.
