Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Matthews District Curriculum
CMS recognizes that each student has his or her own needs, and for some students, Advanced Studies and Talent Development is the answer. The Magnet Program, TD Catalyst Program, Advanced Placement, International Baccalaureate, Horizons, and AVID are housed within this area, and offer opportunities for academic challenges.
Gifted elementary students can be eligible for an academic magnet school, where they will get an accelerated and enriched program at a separate magnet school, or they may remain at their home school and be in the Catalyst model, in which they will get differentiated instruction designed and implemented by classroom and Talent Development-trained teachers. Middle school students may be placed in Standard Plus or Honors math and language arts classes, and will be in classes created solely for advanced students or will be clustered with other talented students within on-level classes. At the high school level, students may choose advanced courses, through Honors or Advanced Placement.

Keeping Informed: Recent Matthews Educational News
- CMS High Schools Succeed at Nationals - Nineteen students from various high schools within the Charlotte-Mecklenburg School System recently competed at the National Speech and Debate Tournament hosted by the National Forensic League. With more than 5000 high school students from across the US competing there, the highest-placing CMS student, a sophomore, earned fifth place in extemporaneous debate.
- Students' Hands-on Science Could Save a Species - The students of the B-3 Program at Olympic High School do more than just participate in lecture-style learning; they are collecting samples in forests and thereby gaining field experience, then are using sophisticated equipment to extract, copy, and separate fragments of the DNA from the American chestnut tree and the Chinese chestnut tree. The American chestnut suffers from chestnut blight, which is an Asian fungus that has killed billions of valuable trees. The students’ hopes? To find a genetic marker that will save the species.

Chalk Talk: Quality Info and…Digestion?
In Ray Bradbury’s fictional Fahrenheit 451, a wise professor gives advice that is good for real-life students: you must have quality information and the leisure to digest it before you can take action. Apply this recommendation to your life by ensuring that your studying has quality—have all your notes ready, turn off your phone and music devices, and get rid of any other distractions. Focus on your subject for a pre-set amount of time. When that time is up, get up from where you’ve been sitting, and digest what you’ve studied: think about how a teacher might ask questions about that material, make connections between what you’ve just studied and what you already knew, maybe even something you knew from another class. Let the information sink in while you take a break, then go back to study the next section. Finally, take action—ace that test!
