What is Accelerated?

Accelerated refers specifically to K-6 Accelerated classrooms at eight of our elementary schools: Augusta Ranch, Finley Farms, Highland Park, Meridian, Playa del Rey, Quartz Hill, Settler's Point and Val Vista Lakes. All subjects are taught at an accelerated pace with skills and concepts and a variety of approved materials that enrich the learning experience. Accelerated is designed to provide a challenging and supportive learning environment for students with strong academic abilities and motivation to learn. Placement in Accelerated is based on parent and student request and teacher recommendation.
