At CMIS we are committed to the following beliefs about learning:

Students learn best when:

  • Instruction is varied in its practice and is individualized to students’ particular learning styles, and when they are fully engaged and self- motivated.

  • Academics, the arts, career and technology, electives, co- curricular and extra –curricular activities are crucial to a well – rounded education.
  • Students also learn best by experience and by developing higher levels of mastery when they can apply learned knowledge and skills to new situations.
  • We further believe that students learn best in safe environments and when the entire community fully supports their learning.
