  • We are in the midst of creating curriculum 'Pathways' that will assist students and parents as they navigate the courses in our secondary system. Some of these courses require specific content skill sets. Please review the draft example of a Pathways map for our secondary numeracy options.

    *If a student wants to go into the IB SL or HL program from Regular Geometry, they will need to double up with Advanced Algebra 2 AND do additional work to get caught up.

    Notes: WE discourage anyone from doubling up in Algebra 1 and Geometry - as you will need strong Algebra skills to be successful in Geometry. Online options, when doubling up, need to be approved by the math department. We have an approved list of courses as a guide. 

    There are also course options for students that are not able to enroll in these high school math courses.
