High School Mathematics

The high school mathematics program prepares students for a wide range of future academic and career options, including science, technology, engineering and business. It also helps them be successful, productive citizens who can use mathematics in their daily lives.

Teachers use a variety of instructional resources and technology to help students communicate, reason, think critically and become lifelong learners. These learning experiences ensure that students are successful on local, state and national assessments.
