Advanced Pathways Program
Winchester Public Schools will design and implement division-wide, comprehensive learning pathways leading to workforce and college-ready graduates.
Part of this pathway plan is to implement course acceleration when appropriate for our students. We believe that going deeper, instead of faster, is imperative to our students' mastery of standards. Acceleration through the standards is a pathway for students who have a sound foundation in reasoning and understanding.
To understand our reasoning and beliefs, we encourage you to read the following articles:
⇒ Mathematics Learning: A Journey, Not a Sprint - Matthew Larson
⇒ Hyper-Acceleration - Henri Picciotto
