Honors and Math Placement

ELA/SS Honors 7 & 8: 

Thank you for your interest in participating in ELA/SS Honors program. RBUSD does not offer 6th grade ELA/SS Honors courses in order to support students' transition from 5th grade to 6th grade. 

Sixth and seventh grade students who possess 3 A's by the end of quarter 3 will participate in a diagnostic exam in spring. Students who do not qualify with 3 A's will have the opportunity to opt-in to the exam. Notification has been shared via Principal E-Blast at that time.

Please complete the following Google link to enroll your student in the ELA/SS Honors courses.


Compacted Math: 

Fifth grade students will participate in the CAASPP math test in the spring and receive score notice during summer. Students who exceed standard or better will be placed in Compacted Math 6/7. If your student does not exceed standard and you wish your child to participate in compacted math, please contact via email assistant principal, Brianne Nakayama, after they have received their diagnostic score. Students may not opt into Compacted Math after 6th grade because they would be missing a year's worth of curriculum. 


If you have questions about the Honors/Compacted policies, please contact Brianne Nakayama at
