Attention: Middle School Families New to TUSD for the 2018-2019 School Year

If you have a 6th -8th grade student joining us for the 2018-2019 school year and you are NEW to Tustin Unified School District, your student has an opportunity to take placement tests to determine the appropriate classes for Core (Language Arts and Social Studies) and/or Math. We offer Honors Core and Accelerated Math to students who qualify. If you choose to have your student take the placement tests, we offer two assessment dates over the summer. It is not required for new students to take placement tests. However, if you would like your student to be considered for Honors Core and/or Accelerated Math, we strongly encourage you to bring your student in for the relevant assessments. If you are interested, please bring your student into the Orchard Hills office for the assessments. Please see below for the dates and times. Finally, please note, these assessments will not be administered to returning Orchard Hills students or returning TUSD students.
