CSD believes that every student will succeed in ways that reflect their own aptitudes and interests. Our mission is to use the principles of The Basic School to provide an optimum environment for learning in which:
1. Teachers and parents work together to create an inclusive community of learning.
2. Students are intrinsically motivated as lifelong learners through hands-on teaching and an integrated curriculum.
3. Teachers are empowered and encouraged to teach to the needs of each individual student.
