Advanced & Advanced Placement Courses
Course Name Changes
Beginning fall 2021, the title of Pre-Advanced Placement (Pre-AP) courses will change to Advanced (for example, Pre-AP Geometry will now be named Advanced Geometry). The name change more closely aligns course titles with the strong programming MISD has in place and clearly identifies and defines the courses as advanced in content. Please note, that while the name of the courses will change, the curriculum and related services will remain the same.
- 5th Grade: Effective starting with the 2021-22 school term, Pre-AP and Advanced course designations will be removed. All 5th grade courses will be on-level. This gives teachers and students the opportunity to establish a strong foundation for future advanced programming coursework, and it will better support the transition from elementary to a post-elementary model of instruction.
- 7th Grade Mathematics: Grade 7 Advanced Mathematics will continue to be an accelerated course where students will be expected to master both the 7th and 8th grade state standards and curriculum during the student’s 7th grade year and prior to subsequent enrollment into Algebra 1.
Questions about the new course names or existing services, should be directed to the campus grade level counselor or the Advanced Academics Department at 817-299-4388.
