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.CLICK HERE to register for the placement test.
Click here to find the reading list for the grade you will be entering. Each list indicates what book is required reading and how many additional books from the list are to be read before school begins.
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.
Course 1, Course 2, Pre-Algebra, Algebra I, and Geometry will be using IXL summer math packets. Students will be emailed login credentials and information about assignments in July.
For a week in October, Altamont's doors swing open and the world becomes our classroom. Students in grades 5-9 are automatically enrolled in class trips. Upper school students in grades 10-12 select the trip they would like to take from a list of choices. Mr. Goldsmith will help upper school students register for a Fall Project Week trip. Visit our Fall Project Week page for more information.
Altamont is a 1-to-1 laptop school. Currently, students entering grades 5-9 are required to purchase school-determined laptops through our online store. Visit our 1-to-1 laptop page for information on the program and laptop ordering instructions.
Course Request Forms
Families will fill out a course request form for each student during math and world language placement testing. This form is used to create your child's/children's class schedule(s).
