MIDDLE SCHOOL STUDENTS:

MIDDLE SCHOOL STUDENTS:

  • Eighth grade students are welcome to start (and complete) a course for advancement in the spring; however, it will not be put on the student’s high school transcript for credit (a note will be made in the comments section: “math course taken for advancement”, if applicable)
  • If current eighth grade students wish for a summer course to be put on their high school transcript, they must complete the course after they promote from middle school, in the summer after eighth grade.
  • Algebra 1 is a graduation requirement, so it must be completed AFTER promotion from 8th grade.
