Special Programs
Early college


Design Lab students learn by doing. High
school doesn’t have to be preparation
for real life; it is real life. Project-based
learning is at the heart of what we do. At
this school, student learning begins with
an actual problem to solve, and ends with
making a difference to a real audience.
This school will begin phasing out
following the 2019-2020 school year,
meaning no new 9th graders will be
enrolled for Fall 2020 and beyond. To
discuss enrollment options, please call
the CMSD Enrollment & Choice office at
