Academic Resource class serves the needs of qualifying students who need a more challenging enrichment option. The subject topics are derived from core curriculum: science, social studies, English Language Arts, and student interests. The class activities are more project oriented and focus on developing higher levels of thinking and problem-solving strategies. Students utilize research skills to interpret a variety of materials and then demonstrate learning in creative, divergent ways. Entry into this program is based upon qualifying scores from multiple data points.
Honors and Accelerated Math Tiers
Northville Public Schools offers three math tiers: On-level, Accelerated, and Honors. The students in the On-level tier learn grade-level math concepts as defined by the national Common Core State Standards (CCSS) and will be prepared to enroll in Algebra 1 in ninth grade. Students in the Accelerated tier dig deeper into the on-level CCSS standards, learn some next-level concepts and will be prepared to enroll in Algebra 1 in 8th grade. Students in the Honors tier focus on concepts from the current and next grade level and will be prepared for Honors Algebra 1 in 8th grade. Students are selected for these tiers based upon spring and fall NWEA math scores, MEAP, other district-administered tests, and classroom performance.
Students in the Honors tier have an opportunity to test out of the next level math course because of their high knowledge level and competency of the Math Common Core State Standards (CCSS) requirements.
