The Advanced Regents Program begins in grade 6 with preparation for rigor. Students are placed according to grade 5 report card grades and/or teacher recommendations.
Grade 7 will be the transition year for students to either remain in ARP or be removed due to struggling academically with the required rigor. Supports will be in place for struggling students; however, it may be necessary to make class changes.
Grade 8 ARP students will be taking grade 9 Earth Science and Algebra 1 courses in preparation for the regents in June. Attendance and seat time is very important in grade 8 ARP classes.
