Our Results

  • 98% of our 10th grade students earned a score of Advanced or Proficient on the English MCAS. 
  • 96% of our 10th grade students earned a score of Advanced or Proficient on the Math MCAS.  
  • 79% of our 10th grade students earned a score of Advanced on the exam -- a percentage that is the highest in the school’s history, and equal to or exceeding many of the best suburban schools in the Boston area. 
  • CCSC middle school students outperformed the state average and Cambridge Public Schools on nearly all Math & English MCAS exams. 
  • CCSC students not only outperformed the majority of their peers across the state, they demonstrated more growth than those peers as well. Students enter CCSC with a variety of academic backgrounds, and it is important to us that we effectively educate all of them. In every tested grade (6th, 7th, 8th, and 10th) and subject (Math & English) in which the state measures growth, our students not only performed well, but their scores improved at a rate that exceeded the state average. 

CCSC’s success has been recognized over the years.

  • CCSC was a finalist for the 2015-16 Pozen Prize for Charter Schools.  The Pozen Prize, awarded by The Boston Foundation, annually recognizes one Boston-area charter school for sustained academic excellence.

  • In 2016, the City of Cambridge passed a resolution commending Community Charter School of Cambridge for its excellent achievements in providing a quality education for all of its students.

  • In 2015, the Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education recognized CCSC for making dramatic academic progress with students.  

  • In 2011, CCSC was an Effective Practice Incentive Community (EPIC) award-winning school.  The EPIC initiative rewards high-need urban schools showing significant gains in student achievement.
