    Grades needed for next math course

    The Math Department is excited to announce that, beginning with the 2019-2020 school year, students will progress from Algebra I to Algebra II, then to Geometry.  We anticipate that this change will allow them to build a stronger foundation in Algebra and will also better prepare them for SATs and ACTs.
     
    Below you will find links to tables indicating placement options based on current grades.  If you have any questions, please contact your teacher (or your student's teacher).
     
    NOTE:  For those taking Algebra II this year who already took Geometry, when you look at the tables, look for Algebra II and its prerequisite grades under the previous course and Geometry and its prerequisite grades as the current course.
