Charlotte Mason believed that education is a science of relationships: relationships to God, to man (including ourselves) and to the world.
The curriculum offered at CMCS (Formerly Ambleside Community School) encourages children to develop relationships with the world around them through numerous hands-on experiences.
Ms.
Mason's methods call for using great literature as a means of putting children in touch with great minds and fine and performing arts to cultivate creativity and an appreciation for the diversity of artistic contribution in the world.
Outdoor play and nature study are part of the curriculum, both of which have been proven to enhance educational success.
