Math Program

“Building Block” Approach for Concept Mastery and Retention

Math concepts build upon each other and influence your child’s success. If your student doesn’t have mastery in one concept, it will affect their understanding of more complex mathematical concepts in the future. We use a proven and effective diagnostic assessment from Macmillan/McGraw-Hill Glencoe to identify all your student’s strengths and weaknesses in the area of math to help us put together an individualized learning plan.  

Mastery of mathematical concepts in the early grades helps promote success with more complex concepts introduced throughout their education journey! Our program concepts are based off of state and common core standards which will help students succeed on their school work and standardized tests in school!
