Mathematics Department

Scarborogh High School's mathematics department strives to give all students the best preparation for the next step beyond high school through math education. We firmly believe that all students have the ability to be successful. Today, more than ever, mathematics is playing a key role in our rapidly changing, highly technological world. Mathematicians are partnering with scientists from other disciplines to solve countless pressing problems with different scenarios.
It is our goal that through mathematics our students can become problem solvers! Our teachers' commitment to student success is displayed in innovating lessons, studentcentered instruction, small group instruction, and character building. We are here for the kids, and always have their best interest at heart!
