M-DCPS opening new high school for Cambridge Advanced Program

The Center for International Education: A Cambridge Associate School has announced that students now can apply to attend this new, one-of-a-kind M-DCPS public senior high school opening in Homestead this August.

The Center for International Education: A Cambridge Associate School will provide highly motivated students with a challenging academic curriculum that may lead to an Advanced International Certificate of Education (AICE) Diploma.

Campbell Drive Middle School is being re-envisioned to offer a robust, accelerated and enriching program to senior high school students through the use of the Cambridge Advanced Program. This facility also will be a district model training center for all Cambridge schools within Miami-Dade County Public Schools, in partnership with Cambridge International Examinations.

Students in the AICE Diploma Program experience a broad-based education while developing in-depth understanding of subject matter. Emphasis is placed on developing writing, analysis, and critical thinking skills while learning to synthesize information and reflect on outcomes.

Students enjoy the flexibility of choosing courses that align with their future educational and employment goals. They develop the ability to learn independently, to work collaboratively, and to understand issues from different perspectives. The Cambridge vision is that all students “become confident, responsible, reflective, innovative and engaged.”

This Cambridge senior high school is the first of its kind in M-DCPS and a much-welcomed addition to the South Florida community. Cambridge is the world’s largest provider of K-12 international education programs. It is a global model for academic excellence through rigorous standards and high expectations. It is known as an educational leader in 160 countries, with programs in over 9,000 schools and is part of England’s renowned University of Cambridge.
