DeKalb to offer MAP testing for private- and home-schooled students applying to high achiever magnets

September 16, 2022 Leave a comment

DeKalb County School District will offer MAP Assessment testing in October and November for students not currently enrolled in a county public school who want to apply to one of the county’s high achiever magnet schools for the 2023-24 school year.

Testing is open to students who live in DeKalb County and who currently attend homeschool or a private school. Registration is open now and will close on Sept. 23, 2022.

It’s important to know that not all students who achieve a qualifying MAP test score will be able to enroll in a high achiever magnet school. These schools consistently draw more applicants than they have room for. All applicants who meet the qualifications will be entered into a lottery and available seats at each school will be filled by random selection.

Emory Math Circle registering for fall 2022

September 4, 2022 Leave a comment

The Math Circle program at Emory University is now registering for its fall 2022 classes, which will be a mix of online and in-person sessions.

Math Circle is a free enrichment program for middle-school and high-school kids who are fascinated by mathematics and who want to explore math topics beyond what’s taught in the typical classroom. Classes meet twice a month on Saturdays. In-person classes begin this Saturday, September 10.

High school class sections will be held in person, on the Emory campus. Students must show proof of vaccination (including a booster shot). Masks are optional, in accordance with Emory policy.

Middle-school students can choose between in-person sections, with the same vaccination requirements as above, or Zoom sections.
