A national enrichment and competition program, MATHCOUNTS promotes middle school mathematics achievement through school, district, state, and national competitions. All CCS junior high students practice MATHCOUNTS problems daily by working problems of the day and weekly problem sets. In January, the math department forms a school competition team, for which any CCS junior high student may try out. The team competes at the local and regional level, often qualifying for the state MATHCOUNTS competition.
