SLz Math

SLz Math teachers are dedicated to the success of each and every student. THAT MEANS YOU! They have a nationwide reputation for innovation and results. Here’s why:

SLz students get to Calculus in huge numbers!

Every year, about 25% of seniors take Calculus.  This gives our graduates the confidence and experience with college-level math that helps them for years to come.

SLz students are on the fast track to college!

In California, tens of thousands of high school students find themselves repeating math classes, struggling to get the basics.  Not so at SLz!  We know our students.  We know our math.  We’ll help you get it right the first time.

SLz students can choose from a variety of math electives

Find an area that interests you.  Push your math understanding further.  In addition to college-prep classes, students can take:

  • Geometry Art – explores the math of computer graphics and design
  • Advanced Topics – prepares students who are interested in careers in engineering, mathematics, the sciences, and other technical fields
  • Accounting – for students interested in careers in business

SLz math teachers are professionals

They are graduates of UC Berkeley, Stanford, Mills College and other universities.  All have come to SLz by choice, committed to working with a student population exactly like San Lorenzo’s.  They are textbook authors, mentor teachers, college instructors, workshop leaders, and award winners.  SLz math classrooms have been featured on TV several times, most recently on the PBS Newshour.  Videos of SLz math students and teachers are used worldwide to help train teachers in effective classroom practices.
