The criteria that can lead to an invitation to an honors class are placement test scores, entrance exam scores, 8th grade courses and grades, as well as Regents Exam scores.
Our Placement Test is administered in March after Registration Day. It covers reading, English grammar, mathematics, reasoning and other academic skills.
This is the last time that placement is based upon testing; after freshman year, each student qualifies for honors and advanced placement courses through his performance in class.
In May, incoming freshmen are notified of their courses for the Fall.
