What are placement exams?

We believe that to achieve optimal progress, kids should train at the appropriate level. By taking a placement exam, we can evaluate their skills and place them in the best possible class for them.

EVERYONE who wants to take a class at level 2 or higher is required to take a placement exam. You do not have to take them if signing up for a level 1 class.

After you are placed in the correct level, you will be further evaluated by the instructor during the first 2 weeks of class to score you in various skill areas. These scores will be compared with your examination scores at the end of the semester so you are able to see the areas with the most growth and track your progress.
