Accelerated Math and Science

It's time to express interest in Accelerated Math and/or Science for the 2023-24 school year!

Attached you will find this wonderful opportunity for our students to take accelerated courses during their middle level grades. This process and criteria is for students who want to take Accelerated Math and/or Science next year during their academic career in 7th and 8th grades.

Benefits and goals of the program include:

  • Courses are designed to be academically rigorous

  • Studies show that students who take accelerated or enriched courses are more likely to earn a Bachelor’s Degree

  • To challenge, but not overwhelm students

  • Encourage students to continue taking Math and Science courses throughout all 4 years of high school

  • Give students the knowledge they need to be prepared for their post high school goals

  • To meet the important developmental needs of middle level students 

  • To develop a collaborative and cohesive process by which to place students in a challenging academic program

  • Encourage a high performing school culture 

If a student is currently enrolled in accelerated Math and/or Science, they are not guaranteed recommendation to advance and would still need to submit a request. New students need to put in a request to be considered for accelerated courses next year. Please see the included process, criteria, and form that explains next steps. If your child wishes to take an accelerated course next year, please fill out the included “Student Accelerated Request Form” and return to Mr. Laycock by Friday, February 17. These forms are also located on the MLA website.
