As the Carrollton City School System strives to offer educational programming to meet the needs of a wide-array of student learners, Advanced Learning Programs at CES and CMS provide students with an opportunity to experience education in a unique environment centered upon making relevant, real-world connections, broadening student perspective, and affording students the opportunity to assume responsibility for developing and achieving their learning goals. In the Advanced Learning Program setting, student learning is extended and enriched through teaching the state-mandated curriculum in such a way as to afford students opportunities to study academic content in greater depth and through complex topics, as a result of the integration of multiple disciplines, and via the delivery of variety of learning experiences. Enabling this to occur, the pace of instruction will be accelerated to better meet the needs of the learner. Also of great importance is
the opportunity for students to learn in an environment reflecting and valuing the diversity found throughout the school system.
