Math Placement Test
Placerita Junior High School
Incoming 7th Grade
All incoming 7th graders will be asked to take a placement test to determine what course they will be placed in for the fall. Students will either be placed in Math 7 or Math 7 Accelerated.
Students coming from a school in the Newhall, Saugus or Sulphur Springs Districts will take the test at their current elementary school. Please ask your 6th grade teacher for the dates.
Students coming from a non-feeder school can come to Placerita on Monday, June 5th at 3:30 pm to take the placement test. If you are unable to make the June test you can wait until August and take it on August 3rd at 2:30 pm. This is the same day as 7th grade registration day.
