Math placement test

All new students and all students wishing to skip a level in math classes should take the math placement test which will help us place the students in the right class. Note that our levels do NOT correspond to regular school's grades. Usually new students are enrolled into 1 or 2 levels below their grade number. During the last 12 years we developed 11 years curriculum in mathematics, the curriculum is far above and beyond the school's math. Many concepts we introduced are based on the material we taught in the previous levels.
New students’ placement into the math classes is based on the results of the Placement Test administered 1 – 2 weeks prior the beginning of the school year.
Student MUST be registered on the website in order to participate in the program and to take a Placement test.
