Project Description

The Magnolia School district is part of the Sterling Interdistrict. Additionally the Laurel Springs School District, the Somerdale School District and the Stratford School District are also a part of the Sterling Interdistrict as well as Our Lady of Grace, our nonpublic partner. In ninth grade all the students from these elementary schools meet at Sterling Regional High School.

Through this endeavor it is our plan to engage all students in experiences that will lead them to a deeper understanding of mathematical concepts through ongoing professional development and yearlong in-class (mathematics) mentoring and modeling. Of equal importance is equipping our students with the problem-solving skills necessary to live in our complex technological world.

It is our vision to obtain this goal through the integration of technology into the mathematics curriculum. Teachers and students will be become proficient technology users as well as mathematically literate.
