Cambridge Curriculum Yields Successful Results
The Cambridge Program in Putnam County prepares students for a successful college experience. Teachers encourage students to become resourceful life-long learners. Innovative project-based lessons require problem solving skills, as well as the ability to describe the thought process leading to the answer. According to Directors of Admissions at leading Florida Universities, these traits lead to high performance in the post-secondary setting.
