In 2010, the school asked students to create a motto. Among all of the words, “opportunity,” “diversity,” and “respect” were suggested most.

CRLS is unique. It divides students into four learning communities. This helps foster teamwork and responsibility.

Additionally, CRLS also has honor courses available to qualified students.

High School Extension Program

As part of the Cambridge Public School District, the High School Extension Program (HSEP) serves a small group of students who may not have performed well in high school but have the capabilities to succeed.

HSEP gives those students the opportunity to complete their high school education in a supportive academic environment. It runs under a non-traditional model which helps students within a variety of fields including reading, writing, and math.

The HSEP program provides opportunities for students in both academic and career-related training. Students in HSEP also have access to Cambridge Rindge & Latin School’s resources.
