As part of the scheduling process for high school, some 8th grade students are being considered for placement into the 9th grade honors program in English and/or Social Studies. Letters are being sent out this week inviting select students, based on student performance and teacher recommendation, to take a placement test consisting of a writing sample which will be completed after school on March 24, 2015.

Students currently in 8th grade pre-AP Soc Studies and Advanced English do not need to complete this placement test and will automatically be scheduled for Honors or AP Social Studies and Honors English.

If you have any questions concerning the placement test/ writing sample please contact the JHS English and Social Studies chairperson, Mr. Benvenuto at 631-376-7272 or
