Academic focus and philosophy

Educational philosophy and approach to learning We believe children should have a strong academic foundation and experience learning through a variety of methods: hands-on exploration, creativity, teacher-guided instruction, small group work and more. All students explore their talents through fine arts classes, technology, Spanish and physical education offered all year long. Extra-curricular activities help round out a student's complete education at CLS.
