All students are required to complete an academically rigorous and challenging four-year curriculum in mathematics. In our department, we offer eleven courses for all levels of high school students from Algebra I through AP Calculus. A student can also receive up to 17 hours of concurrent college credit through the University of Central Arkansas.
We have a thriving peer tutoring program that is accessible to students during their study hall period or lunch. This program not only provides an alternative place for a struggling student to ask for help, but also provides an opportunity for the more advanced math student to offer support to a classmate. This in turn intensifies their understanding of the material. Before and after school, math teachers are available to help all students, not just their own. We understand that math classes can be difficult, but there is help available for students if needed.
With that in mind, we push each student to reach his full potential so that by his senior year he is maximizing his God given gifts and talents. We want to make sure that all students are well prepared before moving forward to college, the work force, or whatever they pursue in life.
Mu Alpha Theta is a nationally recognized mathematics honor society formed in 1957 at the University of Oklahoma. Membership is available to students their junior and senior year for excellence in their math courses. The purpose of Mu Alpha Theta is to inspire students to grow their math curiosity and spread that interest to others. In order to be invited to join Mu Alpha Theta, a student must be a junior who has maintained a 3.0 overall GPA and made all A’s in mathematics. They must attend quarterly meetings and provide tutoring to classmates during their study hall period or before or after school.
