Educational philosophy and approach to learning The school offers programs for children requiring special education and advanced academics. Our core belief is that growth occurs as a result of change. The staff work diligently to provide a progressive and innovative continuum of practices for all students. Colvin Run models a seamless integration of character traits, focus on advanced academic and 21st century learning opportunities for all students, and use of STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math) across the curriculum.
