Welcome to The Prout School, where you will be a part of a tradition that was begun by the Sisters of Cross and Passion in 1966 when they opened the doors to Prout Memorial High School. The school is named after the foundress of their religious order, Mother Mary Joseph Prout.
Faith And Revelation - semester 1
Jesus, Word of the Father - semester 2
English 9 or 9h
Critical thinking and writing skills are studied through literature. Students learn academic thesis writing. The College Prep and Honors levels use different texts to challenge reading level and understanding of literary devices.
Western civilizations (cp or h)
This course covers Antiquity through the 19th century. It is concerned with cultural, political, geographic, and economic aspects of history.
(CP or H) - 3 year sequence required
All students begin in Level 1 French, Italian, or Spanish. This is to facilitate the International Baccalaureate level in the senior year. IBO requires that students taking this course be this age as they sit for the final exam.
Biology 9 or 9h
Topics in Biology include: the cell, genetics, evolution, monera, protists and fungi, multicellular plants and animals, and ecology. These are studied through laboratory investigations and cooperative learning activities. The Honors level is more detail oriented, uses a text that is more challenging, and requires high level writing skills for successful completion of lab reports.
Algebra 1: part 1 and part 2
Algebra 1 part 1 and part 2 is offered over 2 years. The slower pace offers students time for increased practice and repetition as they master the concepts of Algebra 1. Midway through the second year, students will explore essential topics in Geometry in readiness for Algebra 2 in their junior year.
This course is designed to develop proficiency in algebra skills, to improve logical thinking, and to expand the understanding of math concepts. It includes:
- Systems of equations
- Coordinate geometry
Honors students work at a faster pace, solve problems at a higher level of difficulty, and take topics from Algebra 2H.
This challenging course is offered to students who show a mastery of Algebra 1H and an innate math ability. If a student is a capable math student, ready to tackle what is ordinarily a sophomore course, we do not want them in the college prep level class. They need to be challenged at the honors level since they should be a true honors student if they are taking a course that is generally for the grade level above them.
Geometry H integrates geometry and algebraic concepts, and includes:
- Formal proofs
- Two column proofs
- Congruence and similarity
- Right triangle trigonometry
- Areas of polygons
- Regular polygons
- Surface area and volume of geometric figures
