Math Lab

For grades 5-8, the Math Lab is located in Chapman Library in Wesley Hall during the Testing/Study time of each day Monday through Friday. Middle school students need to get a pass from their study teacher to attend. It is also open Monday through Thursday from 3:30-4:30pm.

For grades 9-12, one teacher is available during the lunch period each day in a high school classroom. This information is posted in each math classroom and in the hallways so the students can determine who is available each day. The lab is also open Monday through Thursday from 3:30-4:30pm in Chapman Library.

Highlights of the resources that the Math Lab provides are as follows:
  • Unlike outside tutors, the lab instructors are familiar with the textbooks, style of teaching, grading, and expectations of the teachers. It makes for a unique opportunity that is hard to replicate outside the campus of Wesleyan.
  • When students are sick and have missed instructional days, the math lab's instructor can quickly introduce new lessons so that a student will be caught up when returning to class.
  • The math instructors can gear instruction to specific skill sets that have been identified through standardized testing as needing improvement.
  • Coming to the math lab during available times is a great opportunity for all students who are new to Wesleyan. The Math Lab affords them the time to get extra help and practice with fundamental skills.
  • Students who are not participating in an after school activity can go to the Math Lab to finish homework.
  • Students, who have learning difficulties or need extra time or one-on-one attention in completing assignments, find the lab time particularly useful.

A testament to the value of the Math Lab is that each year recent graduates return for occasional help with their college mathematics.

Grade Chairs

High School Grade Chair


The high school grade chairs serve as the first line of communication with parents and faculty about issues that affect the academic performance of the student. They advise, challenge, encourage, and nurture students as they set and attempt to reach their own goals while encouraging the development of class unity and sense of community. In conjunction with the principal, the grade chairs devise the best program of study and most effective policies for students’ academic progress.

Middle School Grade Chair


The middle school grade chairs serve as the first line of communication with parents and faculty in regard to academic, social, and spiritual issues that affect middle school students. Additionally, the grade chairs lead their respective team of teachers in their designated grade level and work with the middle school principal to plan and promote the programs of the middle school.

Lower School Grade Chair


The lower school grade chairs lead their respective team of teachers in their designated grade level and work with the lower school principal to plan and promote the programs of the lower school. All grade chairs teach full-time and attend regularly scheduled meetings two times monthly with the principal to discuss time sensitive issues and goal implementation.
