Math Pathways

The Princeton Math Pathways document describes the options we provide to meet the needs of our students. All classes cover the Minnesota Math Standards. The first pathway include courses which provide extra, integrated, support for students in need. The courses in the second pathway cover content at the pace appropriate for most students. The third pathway enrolls students in courses at an accelerated pace. Students may move between pathways when allowed by scheduling and readiness.
