OUR CAMBRIDGE SCHOOLS
The Cambridge programs at each high school and middle school achieve the same goals academically. Each program provides students with opportunities to: enhance critical thinking skills and advance personal learning; thrive in a highly academic environment; develop the skills necessary for success in the real world; and offers a level of challenging academics in order to prepare students to be globally competitive.”

WHO WE ARE
Cambridge Assessment International Education is the world’s largest provider of international education programs for over 10,000 schools in more than 160 countries.
In the new, constantly changing, global economy students will need the knowledge and skills that are necessary to navigate the complexities of college and career in today’s global society. These include: an appreciation for cultural differences, ability to understand multiple perspectives, comfort with change, and the capacity for highly critical and analytical thinking. KUSD Cambridge classrooms support students in their journey of achieving the skills necessary to be competitive in the global workforce.
Cambridge programs and qualifications are designed to support students in becoming:
- Confident in working with information and ideas – their own and those of others
- Responsible for themselves, responsive to and respectful of others
- Reflective as students, developing their ability to learn
- Innovative and equipped for new and future challenges
- Engaged intellectually and socially, ready to make a difference.
Innovative approaches to teaching and learning are hallmarks of the Cambridge Academies at KUSD. The Cambridge program is available at Lee Williams High School and White Cliffs Middle School.

Questions About Cambridge Testing?
The Cambridge Stole
A Cambridge student must meet the following criteria in order to wear a Cambridge Stole at Commencements. The KHS or LWHS student must:
- be a senior who completes a full Cambridge course (EX: AS Econ, AS Global Perspectives, AS Literature, AS Language, AS or A Physics, AS Mathematics, AS General Paper)
- have three or more years in Cambridge (with at least 6 Cambridge classes on schedule),
- be in good academic standing (No Ds or Fs in Cambridge classes),

Math Placement Tests
A note about Math Placement: In-coming freshman students who earn a Checkpoint score of a 5 or 6 for math will be invited to take the Math Placement Test before the school year or within the first 10 days of the semester. Students who test who achieve the designated cut score will be placed in IGCSE YR 2 and receive IGCSE YR 1 for credit only. Otherwise, the student will be placed in IGCSE YR 1.
(Important Note: ‘CR’ is not necessarily recognized by colleges or universities. Only letter grades are. A student must have four credits with a letter grade for math to apply to post secondary institutions without deficiency.)
