Normal Admission:

  • Criteria 1: both Math and English have a score of 60 or higher.

In all other cases a student fails the exams.

If a student does not pass the entrance or placement exam and his/her report card grades evidence the academic abilities of the student, the parents of the student can appeal the decision to the School Board.
