Algebra 8 & Enriched Algebra
Central to our mathematics instructional program is a strong belief that all of our students should receive an equitable and inclusive experience where each has access to rigor as well as the differentiated support required to be appropriately challenged. Taking Algebra in 8th grade delays the negative impact of MS tracking, aligns with our inclusive philosophy, and affords all of our students the opportunity to reach Calculus as a senior - a significant diferentiator in the college admissions process.

Pillars of Math Instruction at CCSD
Engagment: Classes will be lively, interactive, and age-appropriate as we engage our 8th-grade learners in rigorous course work.
Rigor: All students can be appropriately challenged in the same setting through leveled assignments, assessments, and planful instructional practices.
Growth Mindset: We will reinforce the “low-stakes” nature of Middle School coursework and support systems that support productive struggle in an academically safe environment.
Opportunity: We will continue to offer a wide variety of 9th-grade offerings and are committed to preparing students to pursue their chosen paths.
Support: Will will deploy a variety of ways to support learners using extra help, AIS, co-teaching, Greeley student tutors, and STEAM teachers.
Achievement: We will closely track the growth of each student to ensure that each student continues on a path of success at Greeley.
