Gale Ranch Middle School


DVHS Chinese and Korean Placement Tests- 8th graders ONLY

Chinese Placement Test:

A Chinese placement test will be offered to determine initial placement into our district’s language program for 9th graders who have not taken Chinese at the middle school.  All students must complete an application in order to take the test.

Note: The highest level into which a student can place is Chinese 2.  Students currently enrolled in Chinese 1A/1B in middle school cannot take this test- they will be placed into a Chinese class next year, per district policy. 


The incoming 9th graders' Chinese placement test is scheduled at 3:10 pm on March 9, 2018 at Dougherty Valley High School, Room 4209. 


After submitting an online application form (see link below), students will receive an email informing them of the testing location.


The last day to submit the application is 3:00 pm, March 7, 2018.
