How did I get here?”: Math Classes

Print Friendly

Our junior high offers eight different math classes.  This large number of classes allows us to meet the needs of a wide range of students and maintain an excellent teacher:student ratio.

Entering into 7th grade, students are placed into a math class based on several factors, including:

  • the content they covered in 9-12
  • recommendations from the 9-12 teachers and Anne Matern
  • recommendations from learning specialists and learning resource teacher Ryan Rosenfeld, who covers a lot of math for 6th graders
  • individual learning styles
  • end-of-6th grade placement test
  • Khan Academy work and progress over the summer

7th grade math classes cover preparation for pre-algebra, transitions/pre-algebra and junior high algebra

8th grade math classes cover pre-algebra, junior high algebra and geometry/advanced algebra
