“The more risks you allow children to take, the better they learn to take care of themselves.” - Loris Malaguzzi


Inspiring Inquiry Through Progressive Learning
Creative Inspiration Journey School (CIJS) provides a groundbreaking, organized Reggio-inspired approach that offers interdisciplinary learning, through project-based experiences. We differentiate and enhance instruction through “gifted teaching methods”, that prepare every student for success in school and life.  Our curriculum features environmental responsibility through an agricultural component and reliance on repurposed materials.   We value compassion, mutual respect, creative and critical thinking, and collaboration, while recognizing the relevance of our actions locally, nationally and globally.
