    Testing for Compressed Math Course Sequence for the 2023-2024 School Year

    Eighth grade students who plan to attend school at Aragon or Burlingame and have taken Algebra 1 have the option of taking a compressed math course sequence, which is a “3-years-in-2-years” program including Geometry, Algebra 2, and Pre-Calculus. 

    Only incoming ninth-graders interested in the Aragon or Burlingame Comp Math course sequence will be tested. Students must be pre-enrolled (or have an appointment to enroll with Student Services) prior to taking the test.
