Through opportunities and challenges, our mission in the Neuqua Valley Mathematics Department is to develop self-sufficient problem-solvers and critical thinkers who are actively involved in a community of life-long learners.
The curriculum is structured into four distinct sequences based upon student abilities. Six semesters of Mathematics, successfully completed, will fulfill the three year requirement for graduation. However, four years are recommended for many students.
- Math Team (NVHS Participates in ICTM, NSML, Upstate Eight Competitions)

These are many opportunities and resources for students to receive extra help and guidance with assignments as well as fine-tuning their skills. In addition to seeking our one's specific teacher, students can take advantage of the Academic Resource Center, which is staffed with math students and peer tutors. Students can drop in during their option period to get extra help. The Academic Resource center is located in D105, adjacent to the cafeteria/commons.
