About Us

Our Mission and Values

Our Mission
 
The Cambridge School of Weston's mission is to provide a progressive education that emphasizes deep learning, meaningful relationships and a dynamic program that inspires students to discover who they are and what their contribution is to their school, their community and the world.
 
Our Values
 
CSW’s core values guide the way we interact with each other, and with the community at large. They have been designed through a highly collaborative and iterative process, and are deliberately aspirational in nature. 

As a community, we value:

Student-centered teaching and learning
We recognize the potential of every human being, and are committed to helping each student cultivate their unique interests and passions. 

Progressive education
We believe that students learn best through active engagement and a process-oriented approach that emphasizes multiple perspectives, wrestling with complexity, and creative problem-solving. 

Diversity
We know that the extraordinary education we offer is possible only ​because​ of the varied ethnicities, races, socioeconomic classes, religions, family structures, sexual orientations, physical abilities, gender identities, learning styles and other identities that make up our community. 
 
Equity
We purposefully engage in equitable practices, working to provide opportunity for individual and shared success. 

Inclusion
We value each voice in our community—listening, understanding, challenging, and engaging each other as we work together to shape every aspect of the CSW experience. 

Empathy
We are invested in each other’s well-being and social and academic growth. 
 
Global engagement
We believe in the power of the CSW community to help create a more just and sustainable world.
