Cambridge Lakes Charter School partners with NIU in creating a pre-service teaching experience that provides a model in teaching excellence. Cambridge Lakes uses personalized learning plans with each student to maximize learning potential, active-learning spaces designed with the learner in mind, and state of the art technology throughout the classrooms. NIU students participate in clinical observations, student teaching, and the school's-out after-school programs to gain knowledge and experience in early childhood and elementary grade levels.
