TUBA CITY — Tuba City Boarding School math teacher Raquel Dale believes her students deserve a smooth transition from eighth to ninth grade and has designed a successful algebra program to reach that end. Her method is simple in some ways. Basically, Dale’s lesson plan is consistent with the curriculum and testing of both Tuba City High School and Greyhills Academy High School.
Dale’s program is paying off. On Dec. 18, 26 TCBS students took the final exam facing high school Algebra I students. According to Dale, all did extremely well.
