We invite you to read through the information below to learn more about the curriculum for our middle school students.

Mathematics

Mathematics reflects the order and unity in God’s universe and contributes to the development of the whole person by enriching one’s life and providing practical tools for daily living. Every student needs an understanding, knowledge, and proficiency with basic mathematical processes, concepts, and skills. Contemporary society demands a mathematical knowledge, which helps students develop the ability to reason and think critically and logically as well as to discover creative ways of solving problems, including the use of technological tools.

The primary goals of the mathematics curriculum are for students to develop an understanding of mathematical skills and reasoning, fluency in basic computational skills, and connections of math to all other disciplines. The curriculum aligns with the Common Core Standards adopted by the North Carolina Department of Public Instruction.
