From Central Park School for Children

Our Mission:

All children thrive in a community rooted in justice and equity.

CPSC's classes engage the whole child with a hands-on, project based approach. We combine traditional academics with art, music and movement, problem solving, conflict resolution, and environmental education. Our students play outdoors every day, with a mid-day recess at all grade levels and additional outdoor time for younger grades.
