Is there a prescribed curriculum that the MSS is designed around?
The My sCool Server was designed after careful research of pedagogical tools widely adopted and recommended by educationists across the globe. However, coincidentally it also adheres to the key principles, recommendations and the approach proposed in the Model Computer Science Curriculum for K-12 schools (CMC).
The proposed model curriculum explains how it helps establish the foundation and prepares the students for the recommended curriculum of the various central and regional boards as they progress through grades 9 to 12.
