Mathematics Department


The math curriculum emphasizes a strong grounding in fundamental computation skills alongside a deep understanding of mathematical concepts. The Singapore math methodology has been adopted in the elementary grades as a means of ensuring a strong conceptual understanding of mathematical concepts while fostering critical thinking and analytical skills through math study.

  • In the lower grades, a hands-on, activity based program with the extensive use of math manipulatives is used to provide students with mastery over the understanding and practice of the basic math facts that they need for problem solving and higher math skills.
  • In the upper elementary grades, a strong focus is placed on problem solving skills as the students formulate strategies to solve increasingly complex math problems.
  • In the middle school, students are provided with an accelerated math program focusing on Pre-Algebra and Algebra.
  • The high school program is college preparatory in nature enabling students to graduate with at least one college-level Math class.
