Revised Acceleration Model

Please view the Byram Hills Math acceleration video below, which outlines the change. We also welcome you to watch the Board of Education video, which provides details of the acceleration change as well as answers several relevant questions about the change.  Finally, we have included the Revised Acceleration Process.

The rationale behind the change is that we would like as many students as possible to experience success in high levels of mathematics. As such, we shall be providing two opportunities for acceleration: one at the conclusion of 7th grade, and the other at the conclusion of 9th grade. A general overview of the program shift, as well the revised criteria for the first opportunity for acceleration can be found in the documents below:
