Multi-age Classes to Change to Looping
After discussions with teachers, parents and school council, Cambridgeport has decided to change the classroom structure to a looping model. In llooping, students are with the same teacher for two years. This allows teachers to develop deep, nurturing relationships with students over time. We believe that it is when teachers know students in this deep way that they are best able to both challenge and support them.
