Educating the Whole Child
We believe a school’s obligation is to provide the child with the skills and knowledge, the abilities and attitudes which are elements of success throughout life.
Academic achievement is fundamental but only one aspect (see the section Evidence of Academic Success).
A child must grow up healthy and confident, independent but also able to live and work as part of a collaborative and supportive group, leading others and choosing positive leaders to follow, loving learning and knowing how to learn.
Children learn these from the role-modeling of those around them, from dialog and discussion, from nurturing the climate in which they live.
CAISL is a student-centered educational community in which we challenge ourselves and each other to do our best and to make positive contributions to our diverse and ever-changing world.
