What is a “rigorous, high expectations curriculum”?
YUHSD has adopted a rigorous, high expectations curriculum for all its students called the Cambridge program of study. Our 9th and 10th grade students are participating in Cambridge IGCSE and our 11th and 12th grade students will soon participate in Cambridge International AS and A level curriculum. The Cambridge program was developed by the prestigious University of Cambridge and is used in over 9,000 schools in more than 160 countries around the globe. Internationally benchmarked, Cambridge meets Arizona’s Common Core State Standards and is designed to prepare our students for college and career by developing critical thinking, problem solving, collaboration, and communication skills in our students.
