Teaching & Learning

Mona Fairley-Nelson
   Deputy Head of CIA

Each day, our classrooms and hallways buzz with the intellectual energy of more than 1,200 students engaged in lively dialogue with their teachers and each other.

Our students are engaged in every kind of subject matter as well as current events and emerging contemporary issues. Our approach to academic excellence embraces the concept of teaching not just “what” but “why.”  

Carol Morgan School’s academic program places us at the top of private college preparatory schools in the Caribbean and Central America. We consistently strive to become a world-class model of innovation in our curriculum, teaching & learning practices, and entrepreneurial spirit. 

Opportunities to discover, collaborate, explore, and experiment are woven throughout our curriculum at every grade level from Pre-Kindergarten to 12th grade. We employ techniques such as design thinking so that students learn critical thinking while broadening their abilities and competencies. Our global connections and technology programs allow students to broaden their horizons while exploring science and technology through hands-on, real-world application. 

CMS is a private international school in Santo Domingo which empowers students to become leaders of a multicultural, global society and where students achieve. They write scholarly papers and original stories, win national and international robotics competitions, and become leaders in their own fields. A CMS graduate is intelligent and confident, fully prepared for college and life beyond.

More than that, our graduates possess an exceptional kind of wisdom that is grounded in global and civic responsibility. Here at CMS, students learn to play a role in sustaining our world, because they are inspired to make it a better place. At our school, academic excellence means more than guiding statements toward mastery of skills. It means guiding all students to self-discovery and connection, providing a foundation that allows all students to fulfill their full potential and fully embrace life and their role in it. The path for success begins at CMS.
