..Standards

Common Core State Standards are taught daily for Language Arts and Social Studies lessons.  Grade 8 standards are the area of focus but time is used to make students aware of the connection to standards for Grades 9-12 and what the expectations will be for them the next four years in high school.  This forward looking approach will help students get ahead for next year, their freshman year of high school.  This will lead to placement in accelerated classes over the next two years and then Advancement Placement (AP) classes their last two years of high school.

Why have the expectation of taking AP courses in three years?  The game these days to get into a top university is to have taken several AP classes in high school.

“The Common Core State Standards (CCSS) were developed through a state-led initiative to establish consistent and clear education standards for English-language arts and mathematics that would better prepare students for success in college, career, and the competitive global economy. The California State Board of Education (SBE) adopted the standards on August 2, 2010. Visit the adoption process Web page to learn more about the process.”
