Service Options

Primary (Grades K-2)
Students are monitored in the primary grades for existing or developing potential. Flexible grouping is utilized in Reading to further develop the students' abilities. The homeroom teacher also groups flexibly to nurture potential in all subjects. 

Elementary (Grades 3-5) 
Elementary grade students are served in Reading and Math through flexible grouping. The student's homeroom teacher also plays a role in differentiating instruction throughout the rest of the instructional day. 

Middle School (Grades 6-8)
Students in middle school are served by block grouping, in which they will be placed in an advanced level course section for Math, ELA, or both depending upon their identification. Other advanced learners who are not identified AIG may also be placed in these class sections. In math, students are offered Accelerated Math in 7th grade. Students who show algebra readiness in grade 7, as demonstrated by a readiness test, review of grades and standardized scores, and teacher recommendation, are allowed to enroll in Integrated Math I for high school credit in 8th grade. 

High School (Grades 9-12)
High school students are allowed to self-select higher level courses to create Curriculum Modifications towards meeting an academic need. This may include Honors and Advanced Placement courses as well as other courses which are considered "inherently honors" due to the nature of the curriculum standards. Options for a Modified Learning Environment can include online learning such as NCVPS, concurrent enrollment in community college through College and Career Promise, Credit by Demonstrated Mastery, or other individualized academic programs, such as Mayland Early College or early graduation. Student academic differentiation goals should reflect an aligned focus.
