Hello. How do students in your school get placed in an honors class? I teach geometry honors and I have mostly freshman who have been on the advanced track since middle school. However I also have sophomores and juniors who requested to take the honors level class. They didn't have a teacher recommendation and not all of them had high averages in Algebra 1. The policy at my school is that if a student requests a honors class they get it. I'm a bit frustrated right now because I just graded the first test and I had students make 30's and 40's on it. They were mostly the sophomores and juniors.
