Research Program

The mathematics department prepares each student for further study by providing a solid foundation in mathematical skills while encouraging organized critical thinking. By providing a caring learning environment, the department helps students become independent problem solvers. The department integrates technology in all of its courses helping students to focus on reasoning skills and visualize mathematical concepts. The department uses many different teaching strategies in its pursuit of providing students with the best possible mathematics education.

The curriculum is designed to meet the needs of a very diverse student body. Every member of the department is sensitive to the varying levels of skills and enthusiasm. We offer daily tutoring, summer math review courses, as well as an advanced math curriculum that provides both rigorous instruction and builds personal confidence.

Walking into John Robb’s mathematics classroom, you might be surprised by a few things. There’s not a piece of paper or pencil in sight, and instead of standing in front of the students lecturing, Robb is in the back – the students do most of the talking. This classroom setup may seem backward, but it’s actually very forward—utilizing new technology and teaching methods. Robb, now in his 12th year of teaching at FSHA, spoke with us about his unique classroom, “flipped” teaching and getting girls to love math.

"FSHA always challenged me to be a better student. The classes pushed me to expand my thinking and work hard. I'm ready for college because of the education I received here." â€”Kayla Grahn '15
