Summer Enrichment

Dear CSS Families, I hope this finds you and your family refreshed and (almost) ready for an outstanding 2018-2019 school year.

Points of Pride for 2017-2018

Dear CSS Families, Alumni, Past Parents, Grandparents, and Friends, In the age of information, we often try to measure literally everything, from our steps to social media “likes.”  This is very natural and can be helpful. However, sometimes we can make the mistake of thinking that things that are not easily measured, do not exist. This is ironic because some of the most important elements of the human experience are invisible and cannot be measured in real time. At The...

At The Colorado Springs School, we practice incident response protocols monthly and last year, through the generosity of several current families and grandparents, we added a security guard to campus....

Every Picture Tells a Story

Dear CSS Families and Alumni,   At The Colorado Springs School, we never stop thinking about our role in the local and international educational landscape and our mission to prepare our students for a dynamic world. Education is a complicated topic and, with 15 grade levels at the school, we sometimes talk about trees, not forests. Today, I share six clear and informative images and diagrams that express the benefits of a CSS education and focus on the larger picture. Portrait...

Tuition Announcement for 2018-2019; Tuition Lock Continues

Other times, achievement means developing a growth mindset to persevere through a rigorous academic term with incremental gains in important skills. Just as students and parents measure the successes of the semester so does our Administration and Board of Trustees. We are...
