Tampa, Fl. (August 26, 2020) – Sumner High School, our district’s brand new high school, has been awarded the distinction of becoming an official Cambridge AICE school, one of the first ever in Hillsborough County Public Schools. This innovative curriculum will be available to a cohort of students beginning this academic year as well as through Academy 2027, our 6th grade program at Sumner.
This is the first year the Cambridge International Program will be offered within Hillsborough County Public Schools. A Cambridge AICE diploma is recognized by the world’s best universities, setting a global standard for education. The curriculum is flexible, challenging, and inspiring.
“This style of curriculum will unlock incredible potential within our students, cultivating a love of learning that will carry on even after high school. The Cambridge AICE program will provide another high-quality choice for families as we continue our quest to prepare our students for life,” said Superintendent Addison Davis.
“I am excited to begin a new tradition of excellence with the Cambridge AICE program at Sumner. This is another tool we will use to develop our students’ critical and independent thinking skills, along with producing graduates who are immediately ready for college or the workforce,” said Principal Dave Brown.
The Cambridge AICE Diploma signifies that a student has mastered an in-depth knowledge of selected subjects including a variety of math, science, languages arts and humanities. The Cambridge experience allows learners to focus on their individual interests while developing transferable skills to be career and college ready.
