At CGS we have an inclusive policy. We do not have rigid guidelines regarding what kind of a learner a child has to be. We require that all of our students are able to manage the CGS curriculum and daily activities. If your child has a specific learning issue we may be able to meet your families’ needs. We believe that classrooms and students can benefit from varied experience and that students learn valuable life lessons from a non-homogeneous classroom. At CGS we are here to create a successful environment for all of our students.
In order to assess whether or not a student can be successful at CGS it is extremely important that parents give us as much information as possible. If your child will require extra support, the admissions process can be a little different. We may request that your child spend more time at CGS in order for CGS staff to make an educated decision about the readiness of your child.
Days at CGS are busy and full of many transitions. Students are required to sit for short periods of time in order to complete desk work and students must be able to respect their fellow students and the school environment. Our goal at CGS is to create balanced classrooms and guarantee a quality learning environment for all of our students.
We have had incredible success with many ‘outside the box’ students and have seen impressive social, academic and artistic progress in these students over the years.
For parents who may be concerned about the presence of an unconventional learner in their child’s classroom, CGS is always mindful of the needs of the group and no child’s learning will be compromised by the needs of one student. It is an integral part of the CGS philosophy that all students deserve a chance to thrive. Tolerance, acceptance and openness are vital qualities in the world and at CGS we aim to lead by example.
