Hawken School Math Course Flowchart

Hawken School’s math department strives to meet each student at her or his point of developmental and curricular readiness.
No two schools’ curricula align perfectly and each student develops at a different pace, so we consider past coursework, placement instruments, testing
results, and any other available readiness information to determine the best possible math placement for each student. This graphic shows the curriculum
paths followed by most Hawken students throiugh our middle and upper schools.

SOLID ARROWS ( ) indicate common curricular directions.

DASHED ARROWS ( ) indicate possible but less common flows.
(MS) and (US) indicate courses at the Middle School or Upper School.
