The first step toward a successful year is to make sure all newly enrolled students are placed in the appropriate level mathematics and world 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 world language skill levels. There is no world 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 about placement, please email Pattie Bank at firstname.lastname@example.org.
