FIRST GRADE

Completion of Placement Tests is required for all new students. Prospective new first through fifth graders will need to complete a math placement test and schedule a time for a Reading/Comprehension test. We encourage placement tests to be taken before enrollment. If tests are not taken before enrollment, students have a 3-week window after enrollment to complete their tests. FPA will only enroll students in courses for which they show proficiency through their placement testing.
