    The goal of the math program is to provide students with the knowledge and skills necessary to apply to everyday math problems in the real world. Students will develop a broad range of strategies so to empower them to become confident problem solvers. Students will have many hands-on opportunities to develop their number sense, abstract thinking, conceptual understanding, procedural fluency, and problem-solving skills. The content and process strands (the how they will learn and use what they are learning) are taught in an integrated fashion so that students can see how mathematical knowledge is related to the real world. The mathematics program focuses on process and logical thinking. Number relationships and problem solving are emphasized through formal instruction on the four major operations in arithmetic, as well as measurement, geometry, fractions, graphing and estimation. The program is enriched by student investigations and exploratory activities. In Pre-Kindergarten through sixth grade, Singapore Math is the main curriculum offered to students, supplemented with additional materials. Seventh grade is offered Pre-Algebra and eighth grade is offered Algebra I.
