The Windham School District offers a comprehensive K-12 math curriculum incorporating both the Common Core State Standards as well as Local Windham School District Standards.  Mastery Standards, also known as Power Standards, have also been identified at each grade level. The Mastery Standards identify key benchmark skills necessary for students to be successful in academic math progressions and in life. They are reviewed and reassessed periodically throughout the school year.

In Grade K to 8, an integrated approach to mathematics is taken.  Students study topics in the areas of Number and Operations, Algebra, Geometry, and Data and Statistics.  In grades 6 to 8, some students take Accelerated Math in preparation for taking Algebra 1 in Grade 8. In Grades 9 to 12, courses are offered in a more traditional pathway.  Most students take Algebra 1, Geometry, and Algebra 2 followed by a choice of an elective math class during senior year. Honors level students have the ability to take AP Calculus as well as AP Statistics.
