The SLAM program is selective and your student met the requirements to be admitted into the program. Grade requirements, teacher recommendations, and applications were required to be met in order for your student to be selected. This is a great opportunity for students who enjoy math to further hone their skills and learn from a college professor and curriculum. In addition, for students who may have struggled in math before, this program provides additional supports for students to receive extra support and ongoing mentoring from both the college professor, Ouchi teacher, and program specialists who follow student progress through college.
