HONORS via a combination of junior high academic records, HSPT entrance examination local percentiles, and performance on the Placement Exam given annually in late April.
The completion of an introductory algebra course before ninth grade is insufficient in itself for ALGEBRA 2 HONORS placement.
Current Freshmen (placement for Sophomore year):
几何布局, 几何图形加速, or Geometry Honors will be based on a combination of HSPT Reading, 口头, 和数学成绩, teacher recommendations as to ability and motivation, 秋季学期数学, 英语, 及语文成绩. During the fall or spring semester of freshman year (students’ choice), students 五月 challenge the sophomore-level Geometry class by taking both fall and spring Geometry final exams – dates for these exams will be given in the freshman classes. If a student passes both exams, he or she will be placed in the next course in the Algebra/Precalculus sequence, as appropriate to his or her freshman placement (see the chart in the sophomore section, 下图). If a student passes the fall portion but not the spring portion, he or she will automatically qualify for placement in Geometry Honors for sophomore year.
Current Sophomores (placement for Junior year):
Junior year placement is determined by Freshman year math class, input from freshman and sophomore year teachers on students' mathematical ability and motivation, and scores on standardized tests (PSAT and/or PreACT).
Typical Junior Year Placement
Sophomore year Accelerated or Honors classes can be used to move up a level if performance and ability are demonstrated in that class (note that simply finishing a class does not guarantee a higher placement
- 学生 from 代数1 who take Geometry Acc or Honors 五月 be qualified for 微积分加速
- 学生 from 代数1加速 who take Geometry Honors 五月 be qualified for 微积分的荣誉
Current Juniors (placement for Senior year):
学生 in 微积分加速 or 微积分的荣誉 will be placed in AP Calculus BC, AP微积分AB, or non–AP Calculus based on a combination of teacher recommendations for ability and motivation, PSAT分数, 和总体数学平均成绩. 学生 in 代数2 will be placed in Precalculus or Math Analysis based on 代数2 grades (B or better for Senior Precalc), teacher recommendations for ability and motivation, 和PSAT成绩. AP Statistics is an open-enrollment class that only requires present teacher's approval (students currently enrolled in 代数2 must earn a grade of B– or better). 学生 who are approved for any level of AP Calculus are automatically approved for AP Statistics as well.
