7th & 8th Grade Math at St. Brigid of Kildare

The new 7th and 8th grade math program at St. Brigid of Kildare is all about individual learning. After much research, we have implemented a program designed to:

  • Meet all students' individual learning needs for pacing and targeted instruction
  • Prepare students to learn for long term--not just the short term memory
  • Organize students so that all are actively engaged in the learning process and not just passive learners.
