CHARTER SCHOOL OF EDUCATIONAL EXCELLENCE
The Charter School of Educational Excellence's mission is to develop students who are critical thinkers, motivated leaders, and lifelong learners. They are committed to a strong partnership with teachers, parents, community and alumni.
The vision is to create a school that has high expectations for every child and challenge each child to surpass the CCLS. In order for the vision to be realized, they believe philosophically that every child must be provided first with a strong foundation in reading, writing, and mathematics. Once the basics have been mastered, the child will have a strong foundation from which to tackle higher order skills, and to achieve at high levels. Ultimately, they expect to see children engaged in challenging work, such as conducting experiments for deep understanding, exploring cultures and histories using primary documents, engaging in debates of classical literature, analyzing great works of art, and appreciating musical compositions, among others. The goal is for every child to become a critical thinker and life-long learner.
