Placement Criteria

Honors Math

Our Honors Math courses offer a rigorous, challenging, faster-paced, Honors-level math curriculum that goes deeper into the concepts learned in the regular Math courses. The Park City School District uses Common Core State Standards curriculum for Math. The Math Pathways Chart is available on the Graduation Planning Guide page.

Current Park City School District students:

  • Current Ecker Hill 7th graders: Honors Math placement for 8th grade will be determined based on student data (such as exam average and current math grade) and teacher recommendation. Placement decisions are final. To register for Honors Math, the Math teacher's signature is required.
  • Current TMJH 8th graders: Honors Math placement for 9th grade will be determined based on data (such as Galileo test scores, 1st semester grade average, and Q2 Final Math Exam score) and teacher recommendation. Placement decisions are final. To register for Honors Math, the Math teacher's signature is required.
  • Current TMJH 9th graders: Current Honors Secondary Math I students will advance to Honors Secondary Math II. Students currently in regular Secondary Math I who want to be in Honors next year must take a bridge course over the summer (dates/times to be determined). To register for Honors Math, the Math teacher's signature is required.

New Students:

The regular grade-level Math classes don't require testing: 8th Grade Math, 9th Grade Secondary Math I

  • ALL new 8th grade students wishing to enroll will need to take the Math Galileo with Gina Mason at EHMS (please call her to set up an appt. time) and bring a printed iReady score report (Weilenmann students) to this testing. iReady scores must be at mid to late 7th grade level on all performance domains. If students meet Galileo and iReady criteria, they will then take a written honors placement exam.
  • ALL new 9th grade students wishing to enroll will need to provide a teacher recommendation, transcript and participate in a discussion with a TMJH counselor (counselor may request a placement test). Students will be placed in either regular Math or Honors Math based on these results. After spending at least two weeks in the assigned math class, the math teacher may recommend a placement change based on evaluation and observation.
