8th-9th Placement Criteria

8th Grade Parents: 

Zionsville Community High School offers honors level courses in English and math as well as early placement in advanced science. These courses provide opportunity for accelerated, in-depth, rigorous study. Students who are successful in these courses typically demonstrate previous school success, have a strong content background, possess an earnest desire to succeed, and possess effective organizational skills.

Placement is determined based upon the following criteria: Honors Information Students who qualify to enroll in these courses will be notified personally via parent email by January 31st. Enrollment is always a parent/student decision, however, and parents/students may choose not to enroll in the honors course. Students who do not receive notice of qualification to enroll by this date may request a form from their middle school guidance counselor to complete and submit to high school department chairs for review of their placement qualifications. The deadline for the review submission is February 15th.

If you have any questions regarding this process, please contact your middle school counselor.
