Information about the Cambridge Assessment International Education program at Coatimundi Middle School and Calabasas PreK-8 School will be presented on Thursday, January 11, 2018, 5:30 p.m. at Calabasas School in the middle school (grades 6-8) Multipurpose Room. This presentation is open to community members, students and any parent/guardian living in Southern Arizona who is interested in enrolling their student in middle school Cambridge classes in SCVUSD35.
Cambridge International Examination classes are offered to students in grades 6 through 8 at Coatimundi Middle School and Calabasas PreK-8 School, the only schools in southern Arizona to offer this advanced middle school program. The Cambridge program was first offered at Rio Rico High School to ninth-graders in the 2012-13 school year. The middle school program at Calabasas and Coatimundi began the following year.
This is an open enrollment opportunity for all southern Arizona students looking for a rigorous academic program that prepares them for early college credit classes. This advanced program in English, mathematics and science emphasizes project-based learning, higher-order thinking strategies, and hands-on learning. Program goals are to develop learners who are:
- Confident in working with information and ideas – their own and those of others.
- Responsible for themselves, responsive to and respectful of others.
- Innovative and equipped for new and future challenges.
- Engaged intellectually and socially, ready to make a difference.
Cambridge International Examinations is the world’s largest provider of international education programs and qualifications for 5- to 19-year-olds. It is part of the University of Cambridge, one of the world’s top universities, known for excellence in education.
