Welcome from the Head of School
Welcome to The Colorado Springs School. At CSS, students develop 21st century capacities through our research-driven teaching methods and our commitment to project-based learning. Our graduates are uniquely prepared to think independently and to meet the challenges of a dynamic world with leadership, ingenuity, problem-solving skills, and personal integrity.
I invite you to come visit our campus and learn about our distinctive approach to education. Here, student academic and social development are the center of our work and extra-curricular activities are not considered “extra” at all—but rather serve our mission, whether on a court, a field, a stage, or a river.
What is distinctive about our graduates? Their skills and their successes speak for themselves. Our graduates know themselves and are able to write their thoughts and feelings with candor and clarity. They understand the natural world quantitatively and qualitatively. They know the ideals of many cultures and can see harmonies and singularities. They are highly literate and numerate and can function individually and as part of a team. Most importantly, they are able to live full lives in community and conversation with others, while also having the integrity to lead.
The Colorado Springs School—building student capacities – every child, every class, every day!
I look forward to meeting you.
