The Royal Bay Math Department strives to bring the best in mathematics education to our students. Our goal is two-fold: to expand students’ minds and perspectives through the lens of mathematics, and to prepare them for post-secondary programs or the workplace. Courses are carefully designed and constantly modified to meet the changing needs of our students.

In order for students to experience the greatest success, careful course selection is critical. Please see the math courses offered at Royal Bay, and recommended pre-requisites for each, below:
