2017-18 Accelerated Core Placement Assessment

To qualify to register for Accelerated Core ELA/SS as a 7th grader during the 2017-18 school year at AJHS.


Test: Accelerated Core Placement Assessment


               Date: Tuesday, April 25th 2017 @ 3:30 pm

 Date: Wednesday, May 3rd @ 2:15

  Location:  AJHS Gym


This assessment is a “cold write.” Students will be provided with all the information and instruction they require to complete this assessment on the day of the assessment. In regards to preparation, we recommend that students get a good night sleep, have something to eat, and feel confident in their abilities (which resulted in the recommendation.)



These times and dates are correct.

State Testing Information

This year, the Aptos Junior High School “testing window” for CAASPP administration is scheduled from May 8th through May 12th. All 7th and 8th grade students will be tested in 2 subjects: English Language Arts (ELA) and Mathematics. Both grade level assessments include constructed response items, selected response items (multiple choice), and a performance task. All CAASPP assessments will be completed using Chromebooks (computers.) Additionally, 8th grade students will also sit for the 8th grade level Science Test, which will also be completed using Chromebooks.  8th grade science testing will be administered on May 30th through June 3rd through your student’s science class period.


There will be a modified bell schedule for the 1-week testing period (bell schedule will be posted on AJHS website). However, the modified bell schedule will only impact the composition of the regular school day and will have no impact on either the start time or end time of school.  Additionally, no assessments will be administered on Wednesday, the early release day. Make up assessments will be administered, as needed, during the testing period and continued to completion. The assistant principal, Mr. Platt, will notify students that require make-up assessments. Passes will be sent for students that require make-up assessments, and attendance will be monitored at the main office. We will do our best to balance our need to complete testing with our desire to be respectful of student needs, the academic demands of coursework, and the instructors.

Valencia Elementary School



Specific Details Regarding AJHS and the Valencia School Relocation


Sea Dragon Families,


As a result of the recent closure of Valencia Elementary, and in support of PVUSD families, AJHS will continue to serve as a stop for shuttle service (both to and from school) for Valencia Elementary students. Busses will be loading and unloading at AJHS throughout the entire school day in order to ensure that all students are able to get to and from school safely. I want to thank you advance for your patience and flexibility in regards to the possible increase in traffic. Additionally, I would ask that we all take the extra time necessary to drive slowly, and safely near all of our PVUSD campuses.


Please use the following link to view all PVUSD bus routes.

Dear students and staff,

    The AJHS Leadership class has been working together to create a safe, accepting, and inclusive school environment. Not In Our School is a national anti-bullying program that we feel will positively impact school culture here at Aptos Junior High School.

      During the week of October 17-21, our Leadership class will reveal the results of our online survey, lead student activities, and share the PSA videos made on this important topic.


    Thank you for your support of our efforts to improve school culture.




The Leadership Team.
