ACE Math & Science

Our ACE instructional program includes 3 components: direct instruction, pull out and push in.  
  • The Direct Instruction piece is a semester elective in grades 6 & 7. Students get one nine weeks of instruction for Lego Robotics (with Mrs. Fox-Valdez) and one nine weeks of instruction in Humanities (with Mrs. Gregory). 
  • In our Pull Out program we pull the ACE students out of their regular academic classes in order to provide them with enrichment activities and allow them to participate in units of study designed for gifted students.  See schedule below for the regularly scheduled times for each grade and school.
  • In our Push In program we collaborate with regular academic classroom teachers. Together we plan lessons and activities for the academic classroom and often co-teach the lesson.
