Registration for 6th Grade Math Placement Test

Dear Parents of 5th grade students:

As we start to look ahead to next year, we would like to offer your child the opportunity to take a test to determine placement on the advanced pathway in mathematics in middle school. If you haven't already done so, you may find it helpful to see this .pdf for information about the math pathways by clicking this link: MATH PATHWAYS INFORMATION

To summarize the progression, in sixth grade students usually are assigned Math 6. Under the Common Core Standards, this is a rigorous course that would have students taking Algebra in the 9th grade, and it is a much more challenging Algebra than what was taught under previous standards. However, we do recognize that some of our students who excel in math and have innate mathematical abilities are capable of skipping sixth grade math and taking a seventh grade/eighth grade math course as a sixth grader (Math 7.5). Students who take this advanced seventh grade/eighth grade course in the sixth grade are on track to take an eighth grade/algebra course (Math 8.5) in the seventh grade and Geometry in the eighth grade. The expectation for these students is that they will continue into advanced math in high school, starting with Advanced Algebra II as a freshman. Obviously, they would be missing an entire year's worth of learning by skipping 6th grade, so it's a decision that should not be taken lightly. Please remember that there is another opportunity for students to get into an accelerated pathway at the end of 6th grade, which would lead to Math 7.5 as a 7th grader, Math 8.5 as an 8th grader, and Geometry as a 9th grader. So if the advanced pathway is not an option for your child, the accelerated option could still work for your child at the end of 6th grade. 

We will offer three opportunities for your child to take the math placement test, and students may take the test at any of the three sites on any of the three dates (only register for one date, please). The first opportunity is on Wednesday, April 18, 2018, at Rolling Hills Middle School’s MP room at 3:00. The second opportunity is on Wednesday, April 25, 2018, at Camerado Springs Middle School’s Library room at 3:00. The third opportunity is on Wednesday, May 9, 2018, at Valley View Charter Montessori's Library room at 3:00. Because this decision is an important one, we want to be sure parents have all necessary information to make the right decision for their child. Therefore, information about the math pathways will be presented at the 6th grade orientation meetings at each site.

THE TEST IS COMPUTER GENERATED AND, AS A RESULT, WE NEED TO HAVE YOU COMPLETE THE FORM BELOW BY MONDAY, APRIL 16th TO ENSURE WE HAVE LOG-IN INFORMATION READY FOR YOUR CHILD THE DAY OF THE TEST.

We plan to notify parents via email of their child’s placement on the advanced track by the end of the school year.
