My Students

Our school community is an academically, culturally and socio-economically diverse mix of middle and high school students. This atmosphere provides our students with a variety of experiential learning opportunities. As specified in our charter, we actively recruit students who thrive in a smaller school environment, as well as those who are traditionally under-represented in high school college preparatory programs.

Ultimately our charge is to guide all students in the discovery of their own particular genius, a crucial step in a distinctive life-path.

We have a diverse population of students that includes: 43% African-American, 21% Caucasian, 24% Hispanic, 1% Asian, and 11% Multiracial. Our vision is that CSS students will be critical thinkers and effective communicators, engaged citizens and life-long learners.

My Project

Please help us to create a safe and clean learning environment by donating to our classroom. We appreciate your support and consideration for our basic classroom needs. Paper, protectors, tape, wipes, paper towels...all of these and more are essential to keeping our classroom running smoothly.

The basic supplies and cleaning products will ensure we have what we need for our everyday lessons as well as for a germ-free work space.

The cleaner our space, the less likely we are to get sick and miss school. We need to be here everyday doing our fundamental activities as well as the fun exploratory lessons but we can't do that without your help!
