Beginning in 2008-09, students may qualify to take college-level Calculus II (fall 2008) and Calculus III (spring 2009) through a dual enrollment program with Georgia Tech. Rising seniors who qualify will attend the advanced math classes at one of two host sites— Peachtree Ridge High or Brookwood High. |
