On Tuesday, March 5th, the entire student body filled the gymnasium at Cheyenne Mountain Junior High (CMJH) to watch German teacher Michael Miller receive a Spirit of the Springs Award from Mayor Steve Bach. The Mayor was joined by his wife Suzi and members of the Executive Team.
The CMJH German program has been designated a German Center of Excellence by the American Association of German Teachers. This year, Cheyenne Mountain is the only junior high school program in the entire country to receive this high distinction.
The German program has a robust exchange program developed in-house and has two partner schools in Germany and uses a non-traditional cutting-edge curriculum and respects diverse learning styles through varied instructional and assessment techniques. CMJH German students routinely score higher than high school students on nationwide German exams.
Congratulations to Mr. Miller and all 93 students in the CMJH German program!
