BLOOMDALE - Elmwood High School is changing curriculums next year to be in line with the new state standards.
Core area subjects have been reviewed and adjusted to meet Common Core curriculum requirements next year, high school Principal Tom Bentley told the school board Monday.
Changes were made to English, math, Spanish and social studies.
He explained that English 12 will become more composition based in answer to college demands.
"That's where the weakness seems to be," he stated.
The high school will no longer offer integrated math. Instead freshmen can take a transition to high school class, which is almost a pre-algebra class.
Advanced math will be brought back for seniors, allowing them to study advanced functions, algebra, geometry and data analysis.
