At CRS, progressive education is the tradition. Since 1911, through student-led learning and hands-on projects, we seamlessly connect knowledge, wonder, and outcomes to drive high engagement and eager anticipation for what’s to come.

The 5 Components of Progressive Education
  • Honoring voices & experiences of children
  • Centering diversity, equity, and inclusion
  • Experiential learning
  • Interdisciplinary learning
  • Knowing our why

Through our progressive education pedagogy, Charles River School students learn to think critically, be creative, to collaborate, to communicate, and to be empathetic.
