Overview of the Mathematics program
It is the goal of the Mathematics program to develop mathematically proficient and confident students. At all levels our program is aligned with the New York State standards and is designed to help students develop skills in computation and problem-solving. With the proper foundation laid at the elementary level, the secondary curriculum provides alternate programs of study to insure that the needs of each student are addressed.
For the majority of high school students a three-year sequence of study in Regents-endorsed math courses is available. This can be enhanced with a choice of electives in the senior year. For students experiencing difficulty, an extensive support program is available to help ensure achievement at the required level of proficiency. Students seeking an additional challenge may take part in the enriched and accelerated honors courses that culminate with the study of calculus in the high school. All students, regardless of their level of accomplishment, are urged to study four years of mathematics.
"The mathematical sciences particularly exhibit order, symmetry, and limitation, and these are the greatest form of beautiful." Aristotle
