The Exam
The examination will assess you in the areas of English and mathematics. You may test in only one examination session. There will be no make-up tests. The format of the multiple-choice test is similar to that of the SAT I Math and Critical Reasoning exam. If you are currently in Algebra, you will take an exam primarily Algebra based. If you are in Geometry, you will take an exam primarily Geometry based. Both exams will also cover: real numbers, equation solving, graphs and linear equations, and inequalities. In addition to taking the multiple-choice test, you will be required to write a multi-paragraph essay in response to a literature-based prompt. Download a PDF that contains the rubric used for scoring, a past prompt, and 5 scored essays.

Since you will be taking the test at mid-year, it is appropriately a mid-year exam, not a final in the subjects.


Other important facts

  • False information will disqualify your examination. Provide documentation of current and past behavioral and academic performance by submitting the most recent eighth grade report card. 

  • For most students this will be your quarter grade as semester grades will not be mailed until the end of January. Be prepared to submit a semester report card upon request.

  • Obtain, if necessary, an appropriate attendance permit, which must be approved by both the student's school district of residence and the Fullerton Joint Union High School District.

  • For students who are transferring from districts outside of Fullerton Joint Union the first step is to obtain a transfer permit from the district of residence. The next step is to request a permit to attend Sunny Hills by calling our counseling office 714-626-4208 and getting an appointment to complete the paperwork. This process usually begins at your home school site. Inter-district transfers must be renewed annually through the sophomore year. A student’s simultaneous enrollment in Sunny Hills and other high schools will disqualify him or her from Sunny Hills 2024/2025 freshmen class. If an acceptance offer has been extended, it will be rescinded, and the student’s place will be forfeited.
