Mathematics

Three different levels of mathematics are offered at High Point in recognition of the different rates at which students grasp the subject matter. At the end of the sixth-grade year students take a mathematics placement exam. Those results are combined with ERB scores and sixth-grade teacher recommendations to place students in either pre-algebra or Algebra 1 as seventh-grade students. Those who take pre-algebra will then take Algebra 1 as eighth graders, while those who take Algebra 1 will advance to geometry. Both the algebra and the geometry courses are equivalent in content to those offered at the high school level.
