Placement Test
Incoming freshmen need to take a placement test. The test determines a student’s high school readiness and suggests appropriate course placement for freshman year. Placement tests for the 2024-25 school year are administered on Sunday, December 10, 2023 or Sunday, February 11, 2024 from 9:00-11:30 am (12:30 pm for extended time, not including the Hebrew assessment). All testing takes place at Rochelle Zell Jewish High School. All students must submit an application for admission prior to sitting for the test. Students needing extended time must also submit a copy of their most current service plan (IEP or 504) and psycho-educational testing. 
Incoming students who have studied Modern Hebrew need to take the RZJHS Hebrew Readiness Test. This exam helps RZJHS Hebrew teachers most accurately assess students’ knowledge of Modern Hebrew.  The RZJHS Hebrew Readiness Test consists of a written section and a brief conversation in Hebrew with one of our Hebrew teachers. The Hebrew Readiness Test is administered on the same days as the Placement Test.
Once all application materials are received (including teacher recommendations, report cards/transcripts, and applicable learning plans), students and their parents schedule an interview. These half-hour interviews are scheduled primarily during school hours with some availability on designated Sundays.
Notification of acceptance and tuition assistance awards will be determined beginning mid-February.
