REACH Overview

REACH Overview

Elmhurst District 205's rigorous curriculum meets the needs of most students. Some students demonstrate exceptional intellectual ability and need experiences extending beyond the regular curriculum. REACH provides curriculum enhancements based on academic needs and augments classroom instruction. Elmhurst District 205 provides enhancements in two academic areas: English Language Arts (ELA) and Mathematics.

REACH ELA is enrichment for students demonstrating academic strengths in the area of literacy in Grades 3 through 8. REACH math is an accelerated math pathway and begins in 3rd grade for qualifying students; REACH ELA identification is not required for advanced math.
