Level Placement

The distinction between the Honors and College Preparatory sections is outlined in each of the course web pages; we also strongly encourage students to consult the two self-evaluation forms provided below.

Initial level placement in Freshman English is based on teacher recommendation; the eighth grade teacher carefully considers a student’s readiness in four areas: language, literature, writing, and work preparation.

Subsequent years’ placements are based on prerequisite grades and teacher recommendations.
