The Cushman School

An Identity Linked to Excellence

Elementary School Curriculum

We know that within each child is the capacity for greatness. We also know that it’s our responsibility to provide them the tools with which to recognize their talents and abilities.

By melding our character development curriculum with academic rigor, as well as the outstanding physical education and fine arts programs, Cushman's Elementary School has made itself a place in which the needs of the “whole child” are met—and a place in which that “whole child” can feel comfortable and accomplished in knowing that on a daily basis the most important goal is to do his or her personal best.

Each day, academics, art, music, physical education, Chinese and Spanish are infused with the active teaching of Cushman’s core virtues--- industry, courtesy, and responsibility. These topics are enhanced by technology and seamlessly intertwined to create a unique learning experience for each student.

Most importantly though, is the way that this learning experience leaves room for our students to explore—because our goal is to teach our children “how to think, not what to think.”  And if we achieve this goal, there’s no doubt that the young men and women we send off into the world are certain to be thoughtful, insightful, and ambitious individuals.

We can’t think of a better way to help build a beautiful tomorrow.
