Springs Charter Schools provides 7th and 8th grade students the opportunity to earn high school credits in the areas of a-g approved mathematics courses and a-g approved foreign language courses. The policy is consistent with the UC/CSU policy to accept these units when taken in middle school. Parents who would like their middle school student to receive high school units must send a written request to the transcript technician for the courses and units to be recorded on the transcript. It is also important to note that: Another school may not accept the units. Only a-g mathematics and a-g foreign language courses can be considered for high school credit.
Please contact the Guidance Department at 951-252-8833 to speak with a counselor about the a-g approved foreign language and math courses which are available to middle school students.

- I-Ready Math Assessment results

- Current math course performance on homework, quizzes and test scores
