About City Springs

Our Philosophy

We believe that all students have talents and can learn through a variety of instructional experiences. We believe that Direct Instruction is the best way for our children to learn. Direct Instruction provides repetition in order for our students to master skills. Once a solid foundation is in place, Direct Instruction connects concepts and builds skills to ensure mastery.

We also believe that all students are unique which should be addressed through in-school and extracurricular programs that develop life skills and leadership qualities and foster self-esteem, self-motivation, and success.
 
We further believe that the home and community should contribute to the total development of our students. We need YOU to share in our vision to help us develop an education for life for our students.
 
We realize that we can achieve our goals by addressing the needs of our students. Their needs fall into these categories: attendance, academic achievement, leadership development, and career or college readiness. Each student needs to work in a classroom that exemplifies the best in learning and in positive human relations, a place where each will find success and meet high expectations in the areas of academic performance and citizenship, a place where students will feel the joy of learning.

Our Vision Statement

Our vision is to be an exemplary, model school where students feel the joy of learning, parents are involved, and the entire community nurtures a solid partnership. With this vision, we promise an Education for Life.
