Students develop a thorough understanding of mathematical concepts and facility with an arsenal of robust problem solving strategies. Content is presented using Singapore Mathematics, a rigorous and challenging curriculum that teaches fewer topics in greater depth compared with typical mathematics programs. Middle school math courses help students develop confidence, master techniques, and employ reasoning skills to solve real-world mathematical problems.

Topics encompass all the Common Core math strands: Ratios & Proportional Reasoning, The Number System, Expressions and Equations, Geometry, Statistics & Probability, and Functions. New material introduced in both concrete and pictorial settings, followed by an examination of corresponding formulas to synthesize observations into meaningful mathematics. Students who demonstrate strong mathematical foundations cover advanced topics in pull-out “math lab” sessions and will complete a full algebra I curriculum. Additionally, all students use the innovative online program, Khan Academy, as a secondary learning resource every week during a designated “independent math” block.
