Bethel High School has been awarded Cambridge International School status, raising its academic programs to internationally recognized levels.
Starting in September with the 2014-15 school year, Bethel will offer Cambridge programs and qualifications from Cambridge International Examinations, including biology, literature and language arts, and mathematics.
Cambridge programs and qualifications are recognized by universities and employers around the world for their comprehensive support, including teacher training, classroom resources and membership of a global learning community.
“This is a great opportunity not only for Bethel High School but for the entire Bethel School District,” said BHS principal Cliff Anderson. “We have taken academic rigor to a new level of excellence.”
Cambridge programs and qualifications are taught in more than 9,000 schools in over 160 countries.
“There are few programs in the world that can match the curriculum, training and intensity that Cambridge will bring to the students and staff,” Anderson said. “All of the major colleges in America recognize Cambridge as a top-notch academic program and will offer college credits for taking Cambridge classes while in high school. Our students desire the best, and they’ll be getting it.”
Cambridge International Examinations provides international education programs and qualifications for 5 to 19-year-olds. It’s part of the University of Cambridge.
