Academics Overview


Students work two grades above their same age peers in mathematics at Cascadia. In grades 1-3 students use the Math in Focus curriculum. The curriculum is based on the Singapore method of math instruction where students learn math concepts from concrete-pictorial-abstract progression. The Seattle School District Math department and our teachers have worked to modify the scope and sequence of the curriculum to meet the needs of students and ensure alignment to the Common Core State Standards. This means your child may not work from beginning to end of the workbooks. Grades 1-3 also follow a walk-to-math model of math instruction to better meet the needs of students.

In Grades 4 and 5 students will be using the  enVisionmath2.0   accelerated two grades above. enVisionmath2.0 was adopted by Seattle Public Schools for use beginning in the 2018-2019 school year in all middle schools. enVision math 2.0 addresses theCommon Core State Standards through problem solving, interactiveexperiences, and visual learning. Personalized math practice, built-ininterventions, and customizable content deepen understanding and improveachievement.
