Grades K-8 all use the Saxon Math program. Saxon Math helps students not only understand and apply concepts, but also provides them with long-term mastery and useful, logical applications that can be applied throughout their lives. The design of Saxon Math is to teach concepts in increments that build upon each other and are tested cumulatively in order to achieve mastery.
In K-2, basic math skills and vocabulary are introduced. Oral, written, and demonstration tests are given to ensure smooth transition to higher Saxon math levels.
In grades 3-4, basic math skills are reviewed. Multiplication and division concepts, including long division, are given particular emphasis. Students are given written and demonstration tests.
In grades 6-8, classes are divided into Grade-level and Accelerated. Grade-level students use the curriculum by Holt McDougall to cover topics in Pre-Algebra through Algebra 1. Accelerated students continue in the Saxon curriculum with Pre-Algebra, Algebra 1, and some topics in Geometry. Students are given formative assessments to determine their readiness for summative assessments. In summative assessments, students demonstrate their level of mastery of the concepts.
