The secret of good teaching is to regard the child’s intelligence as a fertile field in which seeds may be sown, to grow under the heat of flaming imagination - Loris Malaguzzi
CIJS is tremendously unique. It began its first preschool class in 2014 and has been successful because it puts children at the center of their education. We create an environment for active learning and exploration while molding scholars into life-long learners.
CIJS is an exceptionally distinctive school that places an emphasis on collaboration within the classroom through investigation and research. This promotes critical thinking and problem solving skills even with our younger scholars.
CIJS offers an extremely distinguished middle school program where our scholars engage in purposeful exploratory group studies that address real problems, use real-world resources and allow experiences where students find multiple answers to their research based questions, all while collaborating and presenting their ideas to their peers.
