A change in course pathways at NBJH will take effect in the 2020-21 school year for sixth grade.
The change allows for two levels of accelerated learning in addition to the core grade-level pathway.
The three pathway plan adds a single accelerated path to prepare students for one high-school level math class, algebra, in 8th grade.
A new course will be developed to start acceleration in sixth grade instead of seventh grade.
The double accelerated pathway prepares students for two high-school-level classes; algebra in 7th grade and geometry in 8th grade.
