Gaining High School Math Credit
Students can gain high school credit for Algebra 1 and Geometry while attending Powhatan. “I’ve enjoyed moving back to a daily math schedule,” says Mr. Hagerty, an Upper School math teacher. “It’s refreshing. I see these students five days a week, in comparison to the block schedule I was used to before joining Powhatan this year. The continuity of instruction allows for a different level of pacing, acceleration and a deeper understanding of concepts. For example, we’ve just finished about a month’s worth of Trig in our eighth grade Geometry class and now have moved onto introductions to Algebra II core fundamentals.”
