CSR is a world in a school
of critical and literate thinkers and doers!
Welcome to CSR!
We're having a great start to the fall semester. Students, staff, and teachers are settling in to our new (temporary) building and making it our own. Stop in for Briefing on A and D days to see what we're up to!
Mission and Belief
We believe that in order for students to learn, to know how to learn and to love to learn, a structure and curriculum which is child centered must be firmly articulated and put into operation. We also believe that learning must be bonded with the child’s home culture and that the structure and curriculum in place must explicitly value and nurture this bond.
The mission of this school is to enable students to become critical, literate thinkers and doers. The mission will be met through:
1. A child-centered structure and curriculum, which focuses on the child’s psychological, physical, academic, and socio-cultural development.
2. Teaching which is self-conscious, reflective, and subordinated to learning.
3. A development of multicultural respect, understanding, and awareness.
The school is a celebration of childhood where a sense of community underpins learning and where curriculum and activities are structured so that they are hands-on, meaningful, and collaborative. The atmosphere of this school will be non-threatening, challenging, and authentic.
