6th Grade Virtual Field Trip
This week, we had a wonderful Virtual Field Trip with Towson University STEM Excellence Team. 6th-grade students had a great conversation about global warming. We also experimented and learned more about why a lot of carbon dioxide should not be in the atmosphere. We will continue the partnership with Towson University and look forward to more STEM activities.

FYI
In Remembrance of MLK jr
Monday, January 18th is a holiday for our staff and students. However, the meaning of the day should not be lost. Martin Luther King Jr has been gone from us for over 51 years, but his words and deeds are as important today as they were during the 1960's. His message of love, mutual respect, universal acceptance and dignity for all people must not be forgotten. During these tumultuous and troubling times, Dr. King's words and message are as relevant today as they were in 1968. This Monday, remember and reflect on this amazing figure who touched so many and was taken too soon. The paradox of education is precisely this - that as one begins to become conscious one begins to examine the society in which he is being educated. - James Baldwin

FAQs

Q: Is CMIT North MS a public school? 

A: Yes We are a public charter school who is staffed by PGCPS teachers and administration, and support staff who work along side of a limited CLF staff. We have access to PGCPS support but also benefit from additional guidance, management and financial support from Chesapeake Light House Foundation, whose educational concept this school is based on. 

Q: Do siblings get preference in applying to CMIT?

A: The process of gaining entry to any charter school in Prince George's County is through a lottery. However, siblings of already attending CMIT students are weighted differently during the lottery process. This different weighting gives preference to siblings. 

Q: What makes CMIT different then any other school in the district? 

A: Although we are a PGCPS public charter, we are given some autonomy over curriculum. This autonomy allows us to fast track students, who are academically ready, through selected high school courses in math, foreign language, science and technology. It is that fast tracking that opens up opportunity to more advanced  coursework on the college level while still in high school.  Additionally, we offer students supports and enrichments to every student, not available at most schools. Lastly, we are a uniform school which takes away the distraction, the competition and the social stratification that is brought on by non uniform dress in a school. 

Our test scores oustrip not only county averages but also state avaerages. This, along with other metrics has made us a 5 star school. 

Q: Do you offer everything the big middle and high school's offer? 

A: Unlike many school in Maryland, we do not have a  full spectrum offerings in sports.  Instead, our focus is on STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Mathematics). Therefore, our sports offerings are more limited.  We offer, boys and girls soccer, basketball, girl's softball, boy's baseball and club lacrosse in the middle school. Additionally, boys and girls basketball, track/field and volleyball at the high school level. With that said we recently (2017) won the girls county basketball championship and made it to the playoffs in soccer. Our high school opened a multi-million dollar, state of the art gym complex, competitive with all schools of their size. The middle school has also added an indoor gym space.  Lastly, we do offer special educational services, but becuase we are a school of choice, the amount of service hours we can provide is limited to 7.5 hours a week, split between literacy and math. Services hours are delivered by special education teachers but are limited to literacy and math courses.
