What About Structure?
There is a common misperception that progressive schools lack structure. On the contrary, Cold Spring School has a deep, intentional, and multi-layered structure that defines both its physical environment and curriculum. Structure does not mean regimentation or uniformity. It means that children have rich choices within parameters and the space to express their thinking. Teachers have the charge to differentiate instruction so that multiple activities happen simultaneously in Cold Spring classrooms.
