Initiated the 2019-2020 school year, our B.A.I.R. (Building Academic Innovations through Track, a 3-year pathway that provides qualifying students (with a Level 4 or 5 in both ELA and Math on the prior year's FSA) a demanding academic environment with Gifted-trained/certified teachers who will inspire students to love learning, and encourage them to embrace curiosity, creativity, and hard work.
Students begin the "Track" in 6th grade will experience a 3-year program that includes:
- GEM Math (GEM 6, Algebra*, and Geometry*)
- GEARs Science
- Gifted/Advanced Language Arts and World History
Students will "track" together throughout the day for at least 5 of their 6 courses. They will take the STEM-based electives (including the coding curriculum DRONE and PYTHON, supported by Broward College), as well as the Linking Education and Employment Outcomes (LEEO) program for their elective, unless they choose another elective offering. Students will work with an engaging curriculum using their academic strengths as well as having the opportunity to participate in field trips, which extend the learning outside of the classroom, and much more.
