Why are students discouraged from going from Regular Geometry to Honors Algebra 2?
Our Honors Geometry program not only covers a complete course in geometry, but also covers the first half of the Algebra 2 curriculum. Our Honors Algebra 2 course begins where Honors Geometry left off. Therefore, students from Regular Geometry moving into Honors Algebra 2 have already missed approximately a semester's worth of Algebra 2 instruction.

Note: Students who take Algebra I in middle school and elect to have that credit posted on their high school transcript are strongly encouraged to take a 5th year of math to increase their mathematical skills in preparation for college.
What is the best way to contact a math teacher?
Most of our math teachers prefer email.
Which calculator should I purchase?
At minimum a scientific calculator is recommended. (TI 30-XIIS is a good one)
The TI-84 or the TI-Nspire is allowed on the on the PARCC, ACT, and AP tests. Many students benefit from having the TI-84 or the TI-Nspire at their disposal, but teachers will have these available for classroom use.
How much homework is assigned?
Homework will vary from class to class. However, you should expect homework to be assigned on a daily basis.
