    聖馬特刁聯合高中學區(SMUHSD)歡迎您 2020-21年級新生入學的高中測試

    In the next few months, eighth grade students who plan to attend school in the SMUHSD will be meeting with School Counselors to choose classes for the ninth grade year at Aragon, Burlingame, Capuchino, Hillsdale, Mills or San Mateo High School. 

    SMUHSD has adopted the HMH Reading Inventory (RI) and the Math Inventory (MI) as placement tests. School Counselors will use these results along with transcripts and results from the 7th grade California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress (if it was taken among public school students) to help advise parents and students regarding course choices for the 2020-21 school year. 

    All incoming ninth-graders from PRIVATE SCHOOLS must be tested. Students must be pre-enrolled (or have an appointment to enroll by mid-February) to SMUHSD prior to taking the test.

    Non-public middle school students are being offered four options for testing at this time.
