Course Information

We are dedicated to placing students into their appropriate math course so that they do not experience unnecessary stress or anxiety. Individual math course placements are determined collaboratively by the teacher and supervisor by a thorough analysis of each child's skill set and performance through multiple points of data.  All students will be challenged in the determined math course that best fits their needs.  Please see the KPS Math Course Progression Chart to view all of the math pathways available at Kinnelon High School.

For more information about prerequisites and electives please see our full Program of Studies.

Dual Enrollment Course Offerings

We have partnered with William Paterson University to give Kinnelon High School students the opportunity to take college-level courses on-site at Kinnelon High School.  The following courses from the KHS Program of Studies are part of our dual enrollment partnership for the 23-24 school year: 

Precalculus Honors  

Intro. to Calculus BC Honors

Calculus Honors

These courses will continue to be offered during the regular school day, and are taught by Kinnelon High School teachers who have been approved as meeting the standards of an adjunct faculty member by the William Paterson faculty in the math department. Precalculus Honors aligns with MATH 1160 (Precalculus) for a total of three (3) college credits and Intro. to Calculus BC Honors/ Calculus Honors align with MATH 1600 (Calculus I) for a total of four (4) college credits.

All high school students taking courses for college credit must be able to demonstrate their ability to manage college-level coursework and meet the academic criteria; A GPA of 3.0 for high school seniors and a GPA of 3.25 for high school juniors and sophomores. A grade point average of a C must be maintained in each course. Families will be required to submit payment at the start of each course at a cost of $100 per credit.

Students must apply by September 29th and register (including parental consent forms and payment) by October 13th.  Please contact your guidance counselor for more information.

AP weight is awarded to students dually enrolled with William Paterson University.

Course Waivers

Students/Parents cannot waive course prerequisite requirements in mathematics. For example, in middle school, Pre-Algebra is a prerequisite for Algebra I. Students in Math 7 cannot complete a waiver for placement into Algebra I because they have not attained the prerequisite curriculum requirement. Likewise, students cannot skip over Algebra I to be placed into Geometry.  However, if a student is in Algebra II and is recommended by their teacher for Precalculus, the student may use the waiver process to waive into Precalculus Honors.  The Course Waiver Form is linked below.
