I have been truly blessed by CSS. The school is not only on beautiful grounds, but the administration is organized and helpful; the parents are involved in a great deal of extracurricular activities and events. The teachers are creative, skilled, and knowledgeable. There is a real sense of community and good will. I know you will be more than pleased with CSS.
The Colorado Springs School (CSS) is not your typical private K-12. For Children's and Middle school, CSS is a high quality, fairly challenging program that is particularly storg when dealing with disabilities like ADD, ADHD, and Dyslexia. As far as Upper School goes, CSS bills itself as a College Prep School, a reputation that it lives up to every year. However, it is not a TOP College prep school, nor does it encourage its students to attend top universities. Although students in past years have matriculated at schools like Harvard, Stanford, Cornell, Princeton and Swarthmore, they were few and far between. CSS is first and foremost a 'Decent School' mill, sending the vast majority of its students off to good schools, but nothing extraordinary. The merit of CSS, is that students with little drive or energy can and will be sent to college, and usually those with decent repuations. It's not bad.
As a sophomore in the Upper School at CSS, I have seen the difference CSS has made in my education. The academics are fantastic, especially the Experience-Centered Seminar (ECS) program for Upper Schoolers. Any student can actively participate in band, choir, art, sports, theater, and whatever else they want. My parents love the school, too, because of their high level of involvement and their knowledge of the curriculum. I would highly recommend CSS to anyone considering it.
