The REACH teacher meets with grade-level teams throughout the year to provide enrichment opportunities and differentiated curricular resources that are implemented in the general classroom by the classroom teacher.


REACH ELA is an enrichment program for which students meet for 30 minutes daily with the REACH teacher during the Acceleration Block. The curriculum is an extension of grade-level curriculum, which is developed using ELA Common Core State Standards (CCSS). A variety of resources, both in print and virtual, are utilized.

REACH Math at the elementary level is an accelerated program in which students receive a compacted curriculum that leads to students working on above-grade-level content. Elementary REACH Math covers through Grade 7 Common Core Math Standards, preparing student to enroll in Grade 8 Math Common Core State Standards, or PreAlgebra, in Grade 6. REACH Math in elementary school prepares students for the Double Accelerated math pathway in Middle School.

MIDDLE SCHOOL (Grades 6-8)

REACH English is a middle school-level course providing students with enhanced learning opportunities utilizing complex texts and tasks while employing grade-level ELA Common Core State Standards (CCSS).

REACH Math in middle school is differentiated in two accelerated pathways. The single-accelerated pathway is intended for students who demonstrate academic readiness for an accelerated and compacted curriculum in their 6th grade year, and which covers through the equivalent of high school Algebra in Grade 8. The double-accelerated pathway is a continuation of the elementary REACH Math pathway covering the equivalent of high school Geometry in Grade 8.

HIGH SCHOOL (Grades 9-12)

Myriad opportunities for enrichment and acceleration are available to students at York High School. Options include, but are not limited to Honors, Enriched, Advanced Placement© (AP©), and Advance College Project (ACP) courses.
