The second annual Cambridge Morp was a resounding success! Students came together to dance, eat and socialize. Mrs. Marinas and the Cambridge Student Association did a great job as they organized this very unique social. Marissa, Sarah, Alejandro, Jenna, and Nicole paused before they started dinner.

Congrats to the top three in our class! Marangellie. Lilly and Kevin. Your future looks bright! Thanks for making our program shine!
Richard A. Marangellie G. and Joseph R. answer questions about the CSA and Cambridge at Liberty Middle School on Parent Night. We have partnered with Liberty to help make the transition to Colonial a seamless one for our middle school family.
The 2016 Orange County Public Schools District Magnet Fair was held at Colonial High School and was a resounding success. The CSA was on hand to showcase our program and to talk about the huge successes that we have had thus far. Pictured: CSA President Joseph R and Marangellie G. who are discussing the program with a prospective parent and her daughter.
The CSA had a great banner for our annual Homecoming parade and was able to showcase our program! We even won third place in a highly competitive field for the decorations we were able to design!

Do parents and students often ask you: "What's it like studying in a Cambridge classroom?" This video will help you answer this question. It gives a taste of a Cambridge International A Level Maths lesson at Juanita High School in Seattle, USA, and highlights the active role students play in the classroom. It's the best way to help students learn, according to their teacher.
