At Cross Middle School we are committed to providing a quality mathematical education to help students prepare for their futures. Math can help build a foundation of information and skills needed to solve problems, think creatively and critically, function as a citizen, and collaborate with others. Our rigorous curriculum is designed to help prepare students for future success in high school, college, and/or a career pathway.
We believe in a curriculum that meets the needs of individual students. Cross provides blended learning math classrooms. Students spend time each week working in the Aleks program with teacher support to learn individualized instruction. To learn more about the Aleks program please visit their site at https://www.aleks.com/about_aleks/overview. We also use the Savvas EnVision 2.0 textbooks (https://www.savvas.com/index.cfm?locator=PS2xIm), and many other resources to help students meet and exceed the state standards for math instruction.
Different students learn differently. We offer both intervention classes to support struggling learners and advanced placement in classes for students ready to move ahead in the math curriculum at an accelerated pace. Our teachers work hard to provide differentiated instruction for all students so that everyone can reach their potential.
