Middle School Education: Mathematics/Science
Block Schedule

This block schedule is not to be used in lieu of your Program of Study but to assist in appropriate sequencing of course work and for planning each term. This schedule is intended to be a suggested sequence for the program; however, completion of the program is subject to course availability. This tentative schedule is subject to change. The schedule assumes that:

  • You begin courses in the Fall Term (August - December).
  • You have satisfied all program prerequisites, foreign language, and General Education requirements.
  • You have passing scores on all four parts of the General Knowledge (GK) exam.
