California has adopted the Common Core State Standards as our state’s official standards for ELA & Math. The Common Core State Standards set grade-by-grade learning expectations for students in grades K-12 for Mathematics and for English Language Arts (ELA) and Literacy. While states have had standards for more than 15 years, this set of standards has set clear, consistent and high learning goals and is more focused on preparing students for success in college and career. As a result of this shift in learning, our San Dieguito Union High School District has been teaching math on an Integrated model that is designed for students to build on skills learned through sequential coursework. Please take time to read our course overviews to best understand the content we teach at TPHS and the pathways document to map out where you want Math to take you.
