MIDDLE SCHOOL HONORS GEOMETRY

Honors Geometry is offered in all of our middle schools in 8th grade.

Honors Geometry is a rigorous high school college prep class where students discover geometric properties by experimentation and observation. Expectations for the Middle School Honors Geometry course mirror the expectations for Honors Geometry at all IUSD high schools.

To take Honors Geometry in 8th grade, students must have taken one full year of Common Core Algebra 1 in class and received 83% or better on EACH of the three trimester report cards. There is no waiver process for getting into Honors Geometry.

Students will receive a formal grade report approximately every six weeks. To be eligible for Honors Algebra 2 in 9th Grade, students must earn a grade of B or better each trimester in Honors Geometry and be recommended by their teacher. Students who do not receive a grade of B or better each trimester may be recommended for either College Prep Algebra 2, a repeat of Honors Geometry, or College Prep Geometry in 9th Grade depending on their grades in Honors Geometry.
