At Crystal Springs Uplands School we believe that students learn best in an environment that promotes learning in diverse ways about a complex world; stimulates intellectual and creative development; nurtures the individual within a community of mutual trust, caring, and respect; and balances academic and extracurricular interests and accomplishments.
We encourage critical thinking and intellectual risk-taking; responsibility for one's ideas and actions; personal integrity, ethical awareness, and multicultural understanding; individual leadership and cooperative interaction; and respect for one's self and for the views of other.
We endeavor to equip students with a spirit of inquiry; a respect for human potential; a sense of responsibility for the environment and to the global community; and a feeling of joy in lifelong learning.
