Math Department Curriculum

​​Given the variability in curriculum across our many feeder schools, we feel we can best meet the needs of our students by testing all students in math. All students that enroll at Presentation High School are required to take a math proficiency test in order to ensure proper placement.

All current students receive an individualized course recommendation from their math teacher prior to course selection. As part of the recommendation process, math teachers also reflect on the attributes necessary to succeed as they advance to more complex content. Thus, course recommendations are not based solely on grades but are used to help students/parents open conversations between themselves, with their math teachers, and with their counselors as they decide what course is best for them.
