WE ROCK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

]]>We had the same accelerated math program at my son’s middle school. The reason/”evidence” given for the change was that our geometry students didn’t test as well as those from a different school that uses the geometry elective. Now I find out that Urban Promise with accelerated math scored even higher, demonstrating the complete disingenuousness of the NEXO.

This is why good students leave OUSD.

]]>Next year however, geometry will be an elective that 8th graders can take concurrently with algebra. There are about 23 rising 8th graders who are interested in the challenge. It’s great to see!

]]>I am curious about the math classes at this school. How do the students get into this advanced class? I assume they took algebra in 7th grade. What do they take in 6th? ]]>
