CCMS Residential



The CCMS Concert Band recently attended an invited rehearsal of Stravinsky's ballet Petrushka at the Walt Disney Concert Hall. Conducted by Monsieur Lionel Bringuier, the students observed how a professional orchestra prepares for a concert.  Also, students participated in a workshop that explained the history of the piece and its story.

As a Medical Magnet, knowing Greek and Latin roots, which can be learned from studying spelling, is an essential part of our curriculum in preparation for career and college readiness, especially for those jobs in the medical field.

Museum of Tolerance

Ms.Godinez and Ms. Conn led all 8th Grade Magnet Students on a field trip to the Museum of Tolerance for an emotional and enlightening examination of prejudice and discrimination in our world today.  During the visit, each student was challenged to make their own personal commitment to effect positive change in the world.
