Cambridge Assessment International Program
The Corinth School District uses the Cambridge Assessment International Program, a set of standards and assessments that are internationally benchmarked and align with the district’s mission to provide a world-class educational experience. Our district was the first district in the state of Mississippi to partner with Cambridge.
The Cambridge Assessment International Program values deep subject knowledge focusing on conceptual understanding rather than individual skills mastery. This approach facilitates higher order thinking skills such as problem solving, critical thinking, presentation, and independent research. Assessments emphasize short answer, essay, independent research projects, formal presentations and lab-based experiences. More than a million students participate in Cambridge programs in over 160 countries.
Cambridge qualifications are accepted by universities all around the world. Universities understand the demand of the Cambridge curricula and the rigor of the assessments.
