The Math Department is host to 18 teachers and a variety of lower and upper-level courses (GATE and AP) designed to advance students toward the successful study of mathematics in college. Students entering Santa Barbara High School are placed in the appropriate course based on their previous course work and on their individual abilities.
The teachers within the department monitor students on a regular basis to ensure that the curriculum meets their needs and continues to challenge them. The rigor of the course work in each math class requires all students to maintain an appropriate amount of homework each night. Students struggling in classes may be placed into a second math class until they improve their skills.
