The Mathematics curriculum is designed to meet the needs of all students. The curriculum is structured into three distinct sequences based upon student abilities. Any six semesters of mathematics, in the right sequence, will fulfill the three-year requirement for graduation.

Because Honors and Advanced Placement (AP) course work is accelerated and more sophisticated, upper level work of high quality in a compacted time frame is demanded of students. The Math Department has developed recommendations for students to be both challenged and successful. These criteria are indicators of performance levels or standards for the Honors or AP courses and are available from the Math Department.

Typical pathways for math course enrollments can be found here

**Guidance on Summer Classes and Acceleration:**

- It is
**not**recommended to take Algebra I or Algebra II in summer school to accelerate since Algebra is the foundation of all secondary school mathematics. It is recommended to be taken during the school year. Students wishing to advance should take a summer school course after completing Algebra 1 during the regular school year - For additional information about summer course work for advancement or advancement pathways click here
