Among the numerous factors that contribute to the uniqueness of The City School is our passion to create a connected community of learners. Our commitment to overall excellence demands that we support our students to internalize the value of academic achievement while also acknowledging and focusing on learning as it relates to social and emotional growth. Through both the academic and social curriculum, students are challenged to grapple with complex societal issues, be encouraged to have a voice and be held accountable for supporting their ideas, both orally and in their written work.
As a school community, our goal is to embrace the challenge of working together through the daily experiences of learning and growing, providing service to our school and outside communities, and enjoying ourselves in the process. We have found that when children are educated in school environments that embrace them cognitively, socially, and emotionally and provide a relevant and authentic curriculum, they learn that education is worthwhile, powerful… and fun!
I look forward to working with all of you and hope to see you frequently on campus. Please know that my door is always open to students, teachers, and parents. I am thrilled to be embarking upon this 2016-2017 school year with all of you.
