Rising 7th-Grade
Math Validation Process

It's that time of the year again where the math validation process begins. In middle school we offer a validation exam for those students in sixth grade, that currently have a very strong performance in their math class, to partake in a set of validation exams to place into Algebra MS for their seventh grade math course. This is an optional process and is not required. In fact, please note that the traditional middle school pathway (without skipping a grade level) offered to all students will allow them to complete middle school in an Algebra course, high school in a Calculus course, and meet all graduation and A-G college requirements. With that said, if your student wants to partake in the validation process, please look at the following documents to help guide you on how to do so.
