Princeton Advanced Academics provides educational options to meet the needs of advanced students so they can develop their talents, become leaders in their future academic and professional pursuits, and succeed in an ever-changing world.
This program provides resources for students who need instruction beyond current grade level standards.The goal of Advanced Academics is not to label some children as gifted but rather identify which children have a need for specific educational material. Our goal is to identify students have needs that are not being met by the current environment, and to increase the yearly growth of our advanced students.
Framework of Advanced Academics:
- What are the academic needs of our advanced learners? What needs are not being met as part of the general curriculum of our district, as it currently exists?
- What advanced academic opportunities are currently being provided? What additional services are needed?
- Which students will participate? Which students have a need for and would succeed in the various program services?
- How will we know if the program was successful?
Multi-Tiered System of Supports (MTSS)
Princeton Public Schools uses a MTSS framework to ensure that all students receive high quality, evidence-based general education core instruction and, as appropriate, strategic and/or intensive intervention supports matched to student needs.
