The M-A Math Department, in conjunction with the SUHSD, does not recommend summer acceleration. We strongly discourage students from trying to accelerate levels over the summer. We do not believe that a 4-6 week summer program can replace a year's worth of learning. School-year classroom instruction helps to promote the foundations of successful mathematical practices and skills. These foundations will be the basis of future success in a student's course of study and for future national assessments and placements.
The Menlo-Atherton Math Department offers a wide variety of courses for all levels of math students. Our AS and AP pathways are very challenging and offer a very rigorous curriculum. Our advanced classes require students to engage in higher-level problem solving, synthesize several topics and apply their learning. These fast-paced classes require independent exploration and logical proof of mathematical properties.
