A Message from the Lower School Division

Your child’s academic journey begins at the Colorado Springs School, where we educate and value each child as a unique individual. Our passionate and dedicated faculty offer a highly interactive, hands-on curriculum that is both challenging and supportive for young learners, as they strive to find their voice, discover who they are, and determine the unique roles they wish to play in this ever-changing world.

We encourage opportunities to learn and grow as a community through activities such as Book Buddies, during which older students partner with younger ones to participate in weekly reading activities. This strengthens the education experience for students of all ages.

Children's School Book Buddies

Our rigorous curriculum is deepened through experiential learning in the classroom and beyond. While focused on core subjects of reading, writing, mathematics, science, and history, we also value co-curricular subjects such as band, computer science, music, Spanish, library, physical education, creative dramatics, and visual arts. Our teachers strive to bring hands-on experiences into everyday learning. Utilizing an integrated, interdisciplinary approach, dynamic Themes of Study immerse students in a particular subject area.

These lessons build character, resilience and independence and promote the ability for our students to recognize, appreciate and accept the differences of others. We encourage you to discover CSS and to see for yourself how we prepare children for a dynamic world.
