California is among 44 states adopting Common Core Standards (CCS). These standards will encourage students to become self-directed achievers, effective communicators, and complex thinkers who are  savvy information processors, creative, collaborative, and motivated workers who think clearly in  new situations and be comfortable sharing their ideas.

The Mission of Common Core is to provide a consistent, clear understanding of what students are  expected to learn. Students will develop skills in Critical thinking, Collaboration, Communication,  and creativity: the 4Cs. The standards are designed to be robust and relevant to the real world,  reflecting the knowledge and skills that our young people need for success in college and  professional careers. With Common Core, our students will be prepared to be successful in the  global economy.

At MHS there has already been an instructional shift – Common Core is a skill set that students at  MHS have already been learning.  The focus of the Common Core curriculum is Language Arts and Math.  Students are taught skills in all subjects for gathering information from various sources and  applying their knowledge in order to solve a problem. These skills will be tested with the new  Smarter Balance assessments being administered to students throughout California in the spring of  2015.
