Math and English are the anchor courses for success in high school and college, providing the foundation for success in all areas of the Genesis Preparatory School’s college-preparatory curriculum. The middle school course track can be found below.

HIGH SCHOOL COURSES in MIDDLE SCHOOL
As part of our individualized approach, math students who demonstrate mastery early will be considered for enrichment and/or advancement to a higher math course. The result of this acceleration may be that a middle school student will be enrolled in a high school math course during his or her 8th grade year. Students will also take the equivalent of a high school Spanish I course during their 7th and 8th grades.
HONOR ROLL QUALIFICATIONS
Traditionally, independent schools award honor roll distinctions. These distinctions are based upon a cumulative grade point average. Honor Roll privileges at Genesis Preparatory School are still based upon students receiving ALL As for the A Honor Roll or As and Bs for the A/B Honor Roll. Honor Roll Certificates are given at the end of each quarter.
Homework is an important part of each middle division student’s day. Homework gives each student the opportunity to review the day’s lessons, master additional material, and prepare for class the following day. As both short and long term assignments are given, it is necessary for students, with the assistance of both faculty and parents, to budget time wisely.
Part of the transition from the single room, single teacher model of elementary school to the multi-teacher, multi-course model of the middle division is the careful use of time and attention to effectively complete assignment. We expect all Genesis Prep students to complete assignments in a timely fashion, to school standards, and to the best of their abilities.
