Revised Acceleration Model

We are excited to share the revised acceleration model for HCC and BHHS, which began with the 7th grade students in the 2017-2018 academic year.  Four years since its inception, we are pleased to report that this model has been extremely successful in meeting the goals that we had set forth. 

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 2020-2021 Revised Acceleration Process.

Principal's Coffee November 2020 - 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:
