RLS-"YOUR" effort...exactly! The community is GLAD you 4 LEFT OUR district! GO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Meet up again at your "C" school...Feb 25, 2012
Fidelio-YOU are confused. TPA 8th graders DO NOT TAKE HONORS GEOMETRY. They take Honors Algebra...that is ONE FULL YEAR BEHIND the Honors level TD3 kids. Any parent of a Honors level student needs to take a real close look. Why hold your kids back????? My kid took your TPA Honors math class a year ago!!!
Do your homework!!!!Oct 5, 2011
Check it out for yourself...my statement is fact. I can tell by your question, you don't get it. My point is exactly as I stated. TPA does not offer the higher level math classes that the public school offers. What test score are you referring to? Are you referring to when these Honors Geometry students take the AIMS? SAT? ACT?
Again...you are comparing apples to oranges. Not EVERY 8th grade student in TP3 takes Honors Geometry.
I do agree with a portion of your last statement, you get a "basis in math" and you are "small."Oct 5, 2011
TPA? Really, one of the best places to learn math? Not in TD3. My eighth grader is currently in TD3 taking Honors Geometry. Next year as a ninth grader he will take Advanced Algebra/Calculus. TPA does not even offer Geometry to eighth graders.
Do your homework parents and really take a look at what schools are offering what courses. Oct 4, 2011
