Incoming 9th Grade Placement Guidelines
Joliet Township High School District 204 works carefully and diligently to make course recommendations for incoming freshmen that will support a successful transition to high school. Recommendations are made after considering a variety of factors, including PSAT 8 exam scores and 8th grade teacher recommendations.
It is crucial that students put forth their best effort on the PSAT 8 exam to inform proper placement decisions and help us identify appropriate support systems for our incoming students.
Please reference the following presentation for more detailed information about the importance of the PSAT 8 exam, example student schedules, the Freshman Academy, academic supports, and Curriculum Preview Night.
