Some changes may take place early in the semester based on classroom data and teacher observations.

Students who have already earned credit for Living Environment, will be placed in Chemistry and remain a year ahead in the science sequence

Math placement is determined by middle school math experience- students who took and passed both the Common Core algebra class AND the corresponding exam will be placed in Geometry

In select instances the math department, in consultation with the 9th grade team, will nominate students who excelled in Algebra as 9th graders to take 2 math classes in their sophomore year.  Students who are recommended for this must excel in both their math class and math regents exam, and demonstrate stellar time management and emotional management skills. Taking 2 math regents courses simultaneously is very rigorous.
