Direct English/Language Arts and Math Instruction
In math, GSA’s entry-level course is pre-algebra, but students who come in with very basic math skills can be supported with one-on-one work during Ninth-Grade Seminar or study hall. The pre-algebra course is co-taught by a math teacher and a teacher with special education training, with pull-out support as needed.
A similar structure is offered to freshmen in the English Foundations course. GSA provides pull-out reading instruction, and special education teachers work with students to reinforce skills and work toward IEP goals.
