Incoming Student Math Assessment

Welcome to our school community!!! To ensure that your child is placed the correct mathematics class in the fall and to avoid schedule changes we are asking all incoming students to take a virtual math assessment by August 5th. Please find a time where the student can work uninterrupted for an extended amount of time. If the student needs to come into the building to use one of our devices or for a quiet learning environment, please email Assistant Principal Cookson: KCookson@schools.nyc.gov Students should work independently and should NOT seek help from a family member or the internet. There will be questions the students will not know, and that is OK. This assessment will not go on your child's permanent record and will be used solely to make sure we identify students' needs and place them in the best program. Students will only be permitted to submit the exam once. Students will be expected to upload a photo of their work. If they have trouble, they can bring the work to school or email, but each page should have their name clearly labeled. Take the exam now: https://forms.gle/kwEX1c2i9NnnpANt7
