TUTORING

Before/After School:

Each teacher has their own tutoring schedule, which should be on his/her syllabus.  Also, each subject has a tutoring schedule so that students will be able to get help even if their teacher is unavailable.  The tutoring schedules for the 4 main core classes are below.

During Lunch:

The first of half of their lunch period, students can go into the auxiliary gym to receive one on one tutoring for any subject. It is encouraged students do this any time they need some extra help.  However, students can’t miss homeroom for this tutoring.

 

Algebra I Tutoring Schedule

Geometry Tutoring Schedule

Algebra II Tutoring Schedule

Pre-Calculus Tutoring Schedule

 

MATH PLACEMENT

Math classes have a strict pre-requisite, meaning a student may not take the next class in the math sequence until he/she has passed the previous course(s) in the sequence.  However, we do our best to look at each student's situation on a case-by-case basis when recommending math placement.

 

RECOMMENDED COLLEGE PREP COURSE SEQUENCE:

Listed below are different math tracks students can take:

9th Grade:                  10th Grade:                   11th Grade:                                        12th Grade: 

Algebra 1                     Geometry                       Algebra II                                             Pre-Calculus          

Geometry                    Algebra II                        Pre-Calculus                                        AP Statistics

Geometry                    Algebra II                        Acc Pre-Calculus                                 AP Statistics or AP Calculus AB/BC

Acc Geometry             Acc Pre-Calculus            AP Statistics or AP Calc AB/BC          Advanced Calculus II or Multi-Variable Calculus or Dual Enrollment/Georgia Tech Math

4 credits of math are required to graduate.

 

IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT THE ACCELERATED PROGRAM:

There is not an honors math program as there is in other core subjects.   We do offer an accelerated math program.  An Accelerated math class means those students cover 1.5 years’ worth of math in one year.  The pace of the courses is very fast and recommended only for those who can quickly understand new math concepts and who are willing to put in the work to keep up with the pace.  Trying to jump from college prep to accelerated from one school year to the next results in a gap of curriculum that the student will be missing, and also results in students having to adjust to a much faster pace of learning. It is not as simple as it might have been in the past to make this jump.
