|Class Descriptions and Specifications
Students will be placed within the age level indicated by the class schedule until it is determined by faculty that they
need to be moved to a higher level. This means that the student will remain in the same level for possibly 2-3 years.

confident in their mastery of the desired placement and skills to truly progress. No student will be placed in a level to
accommodate car-pooling or siblings in other classes.
