Although Saint Agnes is an Archdiocesan elementary school for children in Pre K 3 to Eighth grade, our Junior High area is different from the rest of the school. The Junior High teachers collaborate together and with the teachers of special subjects to provide cross-curricular, high quality lessons and assignments. This allows teachers and students time for projects and in-depth study of the curriculum. Students are challenged to make decisions and to participate in the learning process. As students move up through the grade levels, and enter our Junior High, our tracking system for math consists of three groups of students. Honors Math (Algebra I), Advanced Math (Algebra I) and Fundamentals of Algebra (On-level Math). It is our intention that tracking the Algebra I instruction at the middle school level will better prepare our students for math at the secondary level.
