Central Park East I


The mission of Central Park East 1 is to educate children to become thoughtful citizens of a democratic society by providing an education that is investigative and reflective, encourages choice, and expects responsibility and discipline in all areas of learning and social behavior. At CPE 1, the classroom is structured for trust and relationship-building by giving students ownership of their learning experience. CPE 1 views itself as a progressive school, and as such, staff and students are connected on a more personal level than the traditional teacher-student relationship. Students and teachers alike are encouraged to explore their own interests and ideas in the supportive CPE school community.
