INFORMATION ABOUT MIDDLE SCHOOL MATH
Students entering 5th grade take either on-level or above-level fifth grade math based on their previous math studies. Typical math pathways through middle school are shown in the chart below:
New students are placed in on-level math unless they successfully complete the on-level assessment with Shannon Downing, Curriculum Supervisor. Information about how to arrange for an assessment will be shared with parents/guardians during the registration process.
After fifth grade, interested students may accelerate their math studies through summer work as described here. This document includes additional information about the required notice, hours of study, documentation and evaluation process that must be initiated before the end of the school year and be completed over the summer.
