GRACE strongly recommends that parents administer the free, online math placement assessment in advance of enrolling in our High School Math classes.  Follow this link (Click Here) to  Alg. I, II, and “Upper Grades”  (Advanced Math, Calculus).  Download the test and answers, have your child take the test and self-grade.  We recommend the publisher's 85% or greater as a pre-requisite to enroll in this class (e.g. If the student scores an 85% or better on the Alg. II test, enroll in GRACE Alg. II).
