На этом этапе выявляются способности учащихся к обучению по программам углубленного изучения физики и математики. Вторая ступень – организация системы обучения по индивидуальным учебным планам. Обучение по индивидуальным учебным планам позволяет реализовать каждому учащемуся личные интересы при подготовке к выбору будущей профессии. Изучение тех углубленных курсов, которые ему нужно будет сдавать в институт, сроки их прохождения, личные пожелания в реализации индивидуального учебного плана помогают ему подготовиться к вступительным экзаменам на выбранную специальность. За годы работы Лицея с ИУП возникла необходимость дифференцируемого подхода к разделению учащихся по группам по математике и физике, которая реализуется в 9-х классах. Разделение по группам происходит по рейтинговым баллам, которые учащиеся набирают в 9 классе в течение всего года по результатам срезовых работ. Разделение на дифференцированные группы по физике и математике обусловлено также решением одной из важных задач, которая стоит перед всеми образовательными учреждениями: повышение качества математического и физического образования учащихся на основе преемственности общего среднего и высшего профессионального образования.

The average American discards 3.4 pounds of garbage every day. Without recycling, we add unneeded pressure to our environment -- from our forests, to our deserts and to our oceans, by extracting more and more resources. Enter the Student Creative Recycle Art Program. S.C.R.A.P. Gallery’s unique approach to help solve environmental problems teaches children to be creative in their personal recycling habits and take care of the planet. We divert materials from the landfill and turn them into great works of art! S.C.R.A.P. Gallery addresses two of today's most urgent issues - the environment and the education of our youth. Our mission is to actively engage youth as stewards of their environment through a concentrated, hands-on educational effort stressing the Four R's - Reduce, Reuse, Recycle, Responsibility.
