PLEASE NOTE THE NEW CRITERIA FOR ADVANCED MATH/SCIENCE TRACK:
The criteria to enter advanced Math and Science Courses shall be based on the student’s math grades as this has proven to be our best indicator of aptitude for higher level courses.
Rising eighth graders must have a math average of at least 88 for the year to go into Advanced Algebra I (and the advanced science track) in eighth grade. Rising ninth graders who have taken Advanced Algebra I must have a math average of at least 90 to move into Advanced Geometry (and remain in the advanced science track).
Rising ninth graders must have a math average of at least 80 to advance to Advanced Algebra I (and the advanced science track) in ninth grade.
A student who attends summer school must drop back to standard track.
If a student is in standard track he or she may only move to advanced classes through the procedures outlined herein or by unanimous approval of the teachers in the math department and the headmaster.
