We use paper-and-pencil tests less frequently than traditional schools, instead relying on alternative forms of assessment such as projects and portfolios that paint a more complete picture of each student`s abilities and needs.
We encourage community and parent involvement to develop children`s understandings of the connections between classroom and real-world experiences and invite parents to be partners in the education of their children.
We establish an environment that encourages independent thought, expression, and creativity. Students are given ample time to grapple, conjecture, follow their passions, ask questions, and find answers with the guidance of dedicated, highly-qualified teachers. We believe that all children thrive in an environment that acts as a catalyst for their natural curiosity and encourages them to develop, share, and feel proud of their individual abilities.
CTL is a school of inquiry that encourages and nurtures our students' innate curiosities. The instructional approaches attend to the varied learning styles of modern children. We provide opportunities necessary for learners to be challenged in meaningful ways, to be truly engaged in critical thinking, problem solving, and creativity through project-based learning.
Children who attend CTL are guided by expert teachers. The definition of an "expert" teacher can be complex and multilayered (Berliner, 2001). We believe that expert teachers are also committed learners. Our expert teachers will:
- hold college degrees and certifications specific to their teaching assignments;
- engage in ongoing professional development to hone their craft;
- read professional journal articles and books; and
- share their teaching experiences through publishing journal articles and books, presenting at conferences, and mentoring teacher candidates and teachers who intern at CTL.
