The Marsteller Math/Science Specialty Program...
-is an interest-based program where we provide students with opportunities to explore in-depth mathematical and scientific concepts while developing their critical thinking skills.
-includes the Virginia SOLs and the Prince William County curriculum (same curriculum, but moves more quickly to allow activities that extend beyond and deeper into the topics.)
-groups high interest students together for science instruction.
-expects students to meet academic and behavioral standards (no grades below "C" and no "U"s in conduct or work habits)
