Rise Up Academics: Math, English, Science

riseup_academics.jpgStudents participate in two of the three academic subjects daily. Each 90-minute features an approximately 10:1 student: teacher ratio. Further, these highly-qualified teachers primarily teach freshmen at CRLS. This provides an opportunity for students to get to know both their freshmen-year teachers in advance while meeting their future classmates.

Math
With the district math curriculum being revised, the Rise Up math curriculum will be centered on preparing these incoming freshmen for their ninth grade math courses in Algebra. Further, the curriculum is interactive and allows the students opportunities to practice their skills.  

Science
This year, the science curriculum will focus on energy usage, conservation and climate change prevention. CRLS has provided a unique opportunity to investigate the effects of building a green roof on a section of the school. With research started by the winning team of this year’s Glocal (Global + Local) Challenge, Rise Up students will learn and implement a plan of action in this project-based learning model.

English
The English department curriculum is also undergoing district-wide renovations this year. Rise Up English will assist students with their summer reading assignments. Further emphasis will be place on their comprehension and their writing skills.
