This innovative learning path has been successful around the world for helping students with openness and responsiveness. CIJS focuses on the ways children think, understand, dream, explore, discover, and play!
CIJS believes that when students are interested and involved with what they are learning, they are able to retain and think outside the box to solve any problem in any situation. Each classroom is individualized in a way that best supports our guiding principles!
CIJS helps students maintain an environmentally conscious philosophy. We use recycled materials for projects, promote the use of natural materials, and teach about the sustainability of ecosystems through the care of our animals and gardens.
CIJS implements standards using a ground-breaking approach in an organized manner, through interdisciplinary learning. We integrate a project-based method of teaching with the Reggio inspired philosophy along with an agriculture based component.
CIJS uses multiple methods to teach and implement an environmentally conscious philosophy. Not only do we use recycled materials for projects, but we promote the use of natural materials within our environment.
Agricultural education prepares students to be problem solvers, leaders, and entrepreneurs, through the use of its three-circle model. Classroom and laboratory instruction, leadership development.
We absolutely love CIJS !! …. I love the daily emails from our son’s teacher telling us what they did, including photos of the day. I love how cozy it is and all the fun activities they do ! … Every person on their staff is amazing 🙂 …. Our son loves it so much that when I pick him up he actually cries because he doesn’t want to leave !

We love that our daughter attends a school where she is loved and encouraged to explore her environment. She is learning and growing every day. We also appreciate the fantastic communication. I always know what she has been up to thanks to the frequent newsletters, emails, and photos.
