Middle School Math Placement

The goal of the PWCS middle school mathematics program is to provide positive experiences which challenges and extends each student's mathematical abilities, provide opportunities to master the content at an appropriate pace, and develop the problem solving and critical thinking skills so highly sought after in today's global workforce.

As students progress through their study of mathematics, some begin to acquire math concepts and processes more quickly than others. Some students can be well served by accelerating their study of mathematics, allowing them to engage with more complex concepts sooner than students who might benefit from the traditional amount of time and instruction.
