The Colorado Springs School, a PreK-12th-grade school of approximately 300 students and 55 faculty/staff. Founded over fifty years ago, The Colorado Springs School offers a hands-on education with balanced concern for students’ academic, social, emotional, and physical growth. Through superior academics and mentoring, The Colorado Springs School prepares students to think independently and to meet the challenges of a dynamic world with leadership, ingenuity, problem-solving skills, and personal integrity.
CSS prides itself on high student engagement, and its teachers are known for their ability to bring learning to life with project-based units, real-world connections, and student-centered classrooms. In addition to teaching, faculty members are expected to serve as class and club sponsors, student advisors, PLC contributors, and seminar leaders in our fast-paced, active, school community.
The school is situated on one campus. Children’s School teachers (PreK-5) work in self-contained classrooms of approximately 16 students each and are responsible for creating a community of learners in which children develop the skills of self-advocacy and resilience while demonstrating empathy and compassion for others. Classroom teachers plan, implement, and assess outdoor education experiences, language arts, math, science and social studies curricula and work in collaboration with specialists in physical education, drama, Spanish, music, and art. They utilize technology to develop integrated units of inquiry. Classroom teachers also serve as important resources for parents, helping them understand the school’s educational philosophy and children’s developmental needs.
