Additional Accelerated Math Placement in Middle School


In Beaverton School District, 6th grade students are already on an accelerated math track. Our 6th and 7th grade math classes cover three years of math standards. The math pathway looks like this for middle school students:

Diagram of most common 6th, 7th, 8th grade math courses: Math 6/7, Math 7/8, AGS I

While some students may take Math 7/8 or even Alg/Geo/Stats I in 6th grade, the sequence of courses above is the path for the vast majority of math learners; additional acceleration would mean a student skips instruction on targets required for later courses. For a small number of students who have a high degree of proficiency in future learning targets, an adjustment to the math pathway may be appropriate. 

To help determine if a pathway adjustment is appropriate, your student can take a math placement test. If they demonstrate a high level of proficiency they may be considered for a single subject acceleration in math and placed into a more accelerated course.

This assessment is optional and about 90% of BSD students follow the course pathway shown above. Math requires strong foundational skills to be successful in high school and beyond. The math placement process is used to ensure all students are appropriately placed in middle school math courses.
