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 Middle Schools began the following year.

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.
