academics2.jpgThe academic program for the Putnam Avenue Upper School reflects a multi-year visioning, planning, and curriculum development process established through the Innovation Agenda. The goal of this effort is to provide all Cambridge students with a superior academic and social experience that will increase achievement, close achievement gaps, and build 21st century skills.

Over the past year, CPS curriculum developers and school faculties worked together to plan, design, implement, and evaluate new curriculum in each content area. This new, rigorous academic program includes opportunities for supports and acceleration within mixed-ability classrooms that welcome all students. The program is aligned with the Common Core State Standards and Massachusetts Curriculum Frameworks.
