PRIMARY GRADES (K-Grade 2)

The REACH teacher meets with grade-level teams throughout the year to provide enrichment opportunities and differentiated curricular resources that are implemented in the general classroom by the classroom teacher.

ELEMENTARY SCHOOL (Grades 3-5)

REACH ELA is an enrichment program for which students meet for 30 minutes daily with the REACH teacher during the Acceleration Block. The curriculum is an extension of grade-level curriculum, which is developed using ELA Common Core State Standards (CCSS). A variety of resources, both in print and virtual, are utilized.

REACH Math at the elementary level is an accelerated program in which students receive a compacted curriculum resulting in students working on above-grade-level content. Elementary REACH Math covers through Grade 7 Common Core Math Standards, preparing students to enroll in PreAlgebra, or Grade 8 Math Common Core State Standards,  in Grade 6. REACH Math in elementary school prepares students for the Double Accelerated math pathway in Middle School.

MIDDLE SCHOOL (Grades 6-8)

REACH English in middle school provides students with enhanced learning opportunities utilizing complex texts and tasks while employing grade-level ELA Common Core State Standards (CCSS).

REACH Math in middle school is the double-accelerated pathway leading to Geometry in Grade 8. The single-accelerated pathway allows students who demonstrate academic readiness for advanced math content in Grade 6, leading to Algebra in Grade 8. 

HIGH SCHOOL (Grades 9-12)

Myriad opportunities for enrichment and acceleration are available to students at York High School. Options include, but are not limited to Honors, Enriched, Advanced Placement© (AP©), and Advance College Project (ACP) courses.
