Mathematics Department

The mathematics curriculum inspires and equips students to be persistent and creative problem solvers. Though our curricula purposefully align with standardized tests (ACT, SAT, SAT Subject Tests), our instruction also challenges students to see through a variety of mathematical lenses and to appreciate not only the subject’s practical applications but also its inherent elegance.  

Every mathematics student is encouraged, challenged, and supported to go as far in the discipline as his skills and goals will take him. Any number of students advance earlier still to and through the AP level, while all students take calculus and/or statistics at an AP- or college preparatory-level before they graduate. 
 
In addition to cultivating a mathematics culture that encourages curiosity and promotes mastery, the Mathematics Department offers an array of robust computer science courses – including post-AP electives in Data Structures and Networking. 
 
A dedicated faculty with deep and varied experience in both industry and educational arenas, including collegiate teaching, forges relationships with students within intimate classes, through one-on-one tutorials, and in co-curricular opportunities that allow the most accomplished and motivated young mathematicians to explore their passion and to be competitive in the discipline outside the walls of the school.
