As of August 16, 2019, CMMS will offer an IB Middle Years Program (MYP), which enables students to centralize their education around global topics involving inquiry, reflection, and international mindedness.

“We are so excited to enter this new endeavor as an IB World School! This recognition will serve to advance student engagement in learning and empower our students to apply that knowledge to real-world issues that will positively impact their future,” said Dr. Kara Coglianese, Superintendent of Schools.
