    MHS Summer School Math Information

    We are planning on one fully-virtual section of Geometry for this summer, however Algebra II will be an in-person class only.

    To be eligible to select virtual Geometry for the summer of 2021, students MUST, without exception, have selected the fully virtual option for the last choice period of the '20-'21 school year, which runs from April 19 - to the conclusion of the year.

     

    • All MHS summer math classes which are being taken for credit are taught at the College Prep Level. (Not Honors)


    • All students who are taking courses for advancement will be required to sit for the NJSLA exam on Friday, July 30th 


    • A student will be awarded five (5) MHS credits on their transcript at the completion of the course.  It will read on the transcript as “Summer School – (Course name) P”.  P for passing or F for failing are how summer grades are listed on MHS Official Transcripts. Summer courses are not factored into the student’s MHS GPA


    • The numeric grade earned in the course is recorded by the teacher and used by counselors for placement into a non-honors course after the summer course is completed


      If a student is interested in being placed into an honors level course, they must do the following:

    • The student’s final grade during the 20-21 school year must be sufficient that they would have been eligible for honors level in 20-21 (For example, Alg 1 Part 2 Honors or Geometry honors grade of 85+....CP grade of 95+) 


    • On day 1 of the summer class, indicate to the teacher that you will need the supplemental materials to prep for Honors


    • Register with your teacher during the summer class for an Honors Proficiency Test.  The testing date for SOAR students is August 3rd, 2021


    • A score of 85 on the Honors Proficiency Test must be achieved to advance to honors at the next level


    • Summer Geometry Prerequisites:
       
       
      Current 8th Grade Honors Students (School Year '20-'21):

      If you are enrolled in Algebra I Part II Honors, you must maintain an 85 average in your current class to enroll in the summer class. To remain in honors math at the high school, you must pass the summer class, sit for the proficiency exam and score an 85 on that exam. Note: Should you meet the first two portions of this requirement but fail to score an 85 on the proficiency exam, you can speak to your high school counselor as you have the option of progressing to Algebra II CP or repeating Geometry Honors as a freshman.
       
      Current Grade 8-9 CP Algebra I Students (School Year '20-'21):

      You must maintain a 90 in your current Algebra I class to be eligible to enroll in the Geometry summer class. Upon passing the summer class you will be placed into Algebra II CP in grade 9.
       
       
      Summer Algebra II Prerequisites:

      Current Geometry Honors Students (School Year '20-'21):
      Students must maintain an 85 average in their current Geometry Honors class to enroll in the summer program. To remain in honors level math at the high school, students must pass the summer class, sit for the proficiency exam and score an 85 on that exam. Note: Should students meet the first two portions of this requirement but fail to score an 85 on the proficiency exam, you can speak to your high school counselor as you have the option of progressing to Precalculus CP, Advanced Algebra/Trigonometry or repeating Algebra II Honors at the high school in '21-'22.

       
      Current Geometry CP students (School Year '20-'21):
      You must maintain an 90 in your current Geometry class AND have gotten a final grade of 90 or higher in MHS Algebra I or UMS Algebra I Part II to be eligible to enroll in the Algebra II summer class.
