If you are planning to take IB MYP Spanish and you are not certain which level you should start at (IB MYP Spanish 1 or IB MYP Spanish 2) we are offering a Spanish placement assessment.

This will take place around the end of February/beginning of March (or once accepted if Intra District Transfer or Out of District Applicant). The placement assessment will take approximately 60 min. We will contact you in order to set up a time for this assessment. Understand that we are providing this assessment in order to set you (students) up for success and place you in the correct level. The assessment is not required but it is very highly recommended. If you are applying anytime after March, please disregard this - we will not be offering the placement assessment after March.
