Future Eagle Checklist

9th Grade Placement*

Level placement for incoming ninth grade students is determined through a careful review of students’ academic transcripts, standardized test scores, and for students coming from our partner schools, recommendations from eighth grade math teachers. If it is determined that a student requires additional testing for proper placement, the Office for Academic Affairs will reach out to schedule the appropriate tests. Student rosters are shared with families in mid-August. If at that time parents/guardians have questions or concerns about a student’s placement, they will have the opportunity to sign up for an appointment with the Assistant Principal for Academic Affairs.  

Please note a student’s level placement is not permanent. Ninth grade students placed in the College Prep (CP) level who thrive and express an aptitude and desire to succeed at the Honors (H) level will have the opportunity to change levels during the course selection process for the next academic year.

*Upperclassmen transferring into Shanahan will be contacted by the Office of Academic Affairs to determine class placement.
