Collaboration is the New Currency

But if it’s not taught, it’s not practiced. We know elementary school learners have the capacity to learn collaboration—which is why we are reimagining how to engrain principles of collaboration throughout the Curtis experience.


Introducing the CLIC

The Collaborative Learning and Innovation Center will provide space for students to seamlessly follow their passions—wherever they lead.

When we take down the walls between classrooms, subjects, grade levels, and the outside—in this case literally—students develop into curious and dexterous problem solvers. This new 21,000ft2 3-story building houses all our arts, science, and technology classrooms under one roof.
