Math & Science Magnet Program Updates begin in 2018-2019!

 

North Springs Charter High School is excited to unveil its updated Math & Science Magnet

program to continue fulfilling the mission of inspiring a lasting depth of knowledge in math and

science through rigor, research, and application.  As students prepare to enter competitive and

global post-secondary learning and workforce opportunities, schools must ensure that they are

providing relevant learning experiences. The magnet committee evaluated its program to determine

how to best meet student needs and interests while utilizing school and community resources.

The magnet changes:

  • Place an emphasis on the rigor element of the program's mission by extending

 learning beyond the high school experience with dual-enrolled college courses

 in math and AP science electives.

  • Dual-enrolled courses will be available on college campuses and the North

Springs campus.

  • Students will continue to participate in math and science related competitions

to explore interests, develop research skills, and apply knowledge.

  • Students will complete a tiered pathway of math and science courses while

participating in relevant extra-curricular activities. See box at right!

  • Pathway placement will be based on a student's previous math courses and a

 math placement test.

  •  The magnet changes will go into effect in the 2018-19 school year for the

graduating class of 2022 and after.

The North Springs Magnet Coordinator will release coursework details for students

participating in both the Math & Science and Visual & Performing Arts programs at a later date.

Prospective magnet students should review the updated magnet and application process

when it is available to learn more.

Find  Yourself  Here!

Students who like to work with numbers, problem solve from a mathematical point of view,

learn about science, conduct experiments, engage in scientific research or do mathematical

modeling will find the Math & Science Magnet program offers a variety of core and elective

classes. Students can participate in many extra-curricular clubs, local, regional, state and 

global competitions and honor societies.  

Math & Science Magnet

The magnet program allows students who meet the academic entrance requirements to

 pursue an interest in math or science through additional math and science elective

 requirements reflected in a transcript that shows depth and rigor. Students interested

 in the Math/Science Magnet must apply, have an overall 85 GPA and maintain an 85 GPA

 in their Math and Sciences courses. Students may focus their classes in mathematics or

science or both.

Our Mission

Inspiring a lasting depth of knowledge in math and science through logic, research

and applications.

 

​Mathematics

​Science​​​

The mathematics curriculum involves problem-solving, communication, reasoning and connecting through the study of numbers and operations on them. 
Algebra, functions, geometry, trigonometry, statistics, probability 
and the conceptual underpinnings of 
calculus and mathematical structure
are part of the Georgia Performance Standards that focus on mastery and application of key concepts. 
​ 

 

     ​IMG_3410.jpg

The Science Department offers a 
range of courses for students to 
study a variety of topics in a problem based/project-based learning 
environment. Objectives and goals from national standards and Georgia Performance Standards (GPS) are
incorporated into the science courses. The curriculum is designed to enhance students understanding of science, enabling them to become environmentally, scientifically and technologically literate. ​
 
 

 And the Science Fair winners are . . .
