Middle School Math Placement

Middle School Math Course Placement

Saratoga Union School District strives to provide the best possible educational experience for our students. Appropriate math placement is one of the most critical determinations in this process. Academic readiness is fundamental to our course placement philosophy. We desire all of our students to be challenged in their math class, experience a suitable instructional pace, build a strong math foundation so they will be successful as they learn advanced topics beyond middle school, and enjoy mathematics to the greatest extent possible.
