Student Placement and Class Assignments for 2023-2024

The process of assigning students to classes is complex. This process is taken seriously by the staff and administration and involves a great deal of time and careful thought concerning the best interest of every child. Classrooms are heterogeneously grouped using many factors and criteria in order to create a balanced class. The criteria and factors include:

 Academic needs

 Learning styles

 Social dynamics

 Behavioral and/or emotional needs

 Personality characteristics

 Gender

We respectfully requests that parents honor the professional judgment of the staff and administration concerning student placement. Parents may share with the appropriate school administrator and counselors specific information which you feel we should be aware of during the assignment process. However, a final decision on all student assignments rests with the administration.  The AGMS school counselors are Kristi Milburn, kmilburn@avongrove.org for students in 8th grade and Sami Phelps, sphelps@avongrove.org  for students in 7th grade.
