Incoming Class of 2027 freshmen can take a proficiency test in Algebra, Geometry, Spanish or Latin to determine their level of mastery in these subjects. Tests are free and last one hour. They will be administered at BCHS, beginning at noon as follows:

  • Tuesday, June 6: Algebra
  • Wednesday, June 7: Geometry
  • Thursday, June 8: Spanish or Latin

All tests will be taken via the school iPads. If your child is taking Health in summer school, they will use their issued iPad. Students not having that iPad will be given one and should arrive 15 minutes early to get setup. A monitored lunch period is available for those taking health (11:30 – 11:55 – please bring your own sack lunch). If a student has an education plan on file with Mrs. Brogan, accommodations will be programmed for those individual exams.
