Advanced & Advanced Placement Courses

Course Name Changes
Beginning fall 2021, the title of Pre-Advanced Placement (Pre-AP) courses changed 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.
     
  • 6th Grade Mathematics: Starting in the 2024-2025 school year, Grade 6 Advanced Mathematics will now be an accelerated course where students will be expected to master both the 6th and 7th grade state standards and curriculum during the student’s 6th grade year. For more information about the state Middle School Advanced Mathematics Program, please visit this page.
     
  • 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.
