We are committed to student achievement and individual success for each learner. The students are our primary concern and we take all aspects of their growth and development very seriously.  We aspire to provide a quality education for all students while addressing individual needs, strengths, challenges, and unique learning styles so that they may reach their fullest potential.  Our early childhood learning environment fosters an appreciation of individuality, diversity, and citizenship.  It is our hope that our students will develop a desire to become life-long learners, contributing members of society, and that they will pursue academic excellence as they begin their educational journey with us at Cold Spring School.
