About CPS Upper Schools

students working on project togetherCambridge Public Schools includes five schools for students in Grades 6-8. Four Upper Schools receive students from specific elementary schools, and the Amigos School has both an elementary and upper school program. As shown in the diagram on this page, 5th Graders from each K-5 school are automatically enrolled in their Upper School, along with students from 1-2 other elementary schools.

All Upper Schools follow the same curriculum and provide the same fine arts and athletics experiences. The Upper School Program includes:
  • A challenging math curriculum that engages students in mathematically rich investigation.
  • Social Science exploration anchored in programs such as History Alive! and Facing History and Ourselves.
  • English Language Arts classes that encourage students to understand themselves as readers and writers through the exploration of genres and writing for outside audiences such as literary contests, journals, and websites.
  • A choice of language: French or Spanish at all Upper Schools, plus Portuguese at CSUS and Chinese at PAUS.
  • Introductory visual and performing arts for all, and advanced electives in technical theater, band, orchestra, chorus, and drama.
  • An interactive science curriculum supported by feld experiences at Harvard, MIT, and area technology firms.
  • Robust technology for learning, including Enoboards and Chromebooks
  • Enriching afterschool programs such as school plays, intramural sports, city-wide music and theater groups, Debate Team, and Model United Nations.
