CMCS participated in Running Fit's Martian Marathon. They logged 26.2 miles during 3 months! Congrats to all the students who completed the marathon.
- 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.
