Eighth Grade Parent Orientation Night is tentatively scheduled for Thursday, January 28, 2021.

It will be a virtual/online event. More details will be posted here as they are finalized.

Registration is open for the current school year and for the 2021-22 school year.

When you fill out the online registration form, please make sure to select the correct school year.

Placement Testing:

The only placement testing that is held for Los Altos HS is for Mandarin Chinese.
For all other subjects, including math, students self-select their course/level.


Mandarin Placement Test / Evaluation:

The test is for interested incoming students who have prior experience of learning Mandarin (weekend Chinese school, private tutoring, after school programs, etc) and would like to get their proficiency level tested so they can sign up for the right Mandarin class. 8th graders who are currently enrolled in Egan or Bullis Charter School's Mandarin program should sign up for Mandarin 2. There is no need for these students to come take the test. 

Course Information:

For information about specific classes, subjects, and graduation requirements , please refer to the Course Information page in the Academics section or the Course Selection page in the Counseling page in the Student Services section.
