Civano Community School Promise


Established in 1999, Civano Community School, centers its focus on the whole child. Our motto – “Where Children Want to Learn” – creates an experience that is founded on the guiding principles:

  • curiosity
  • tenacity and grit
  • collaboration
  • stewardship

At Civano Community School our students learn to be positive citizens in our society through a diverse way of creative-play-blocksexperiences. Students interact and collaborate, problem solve, take into account their questioning skills, and are guided by expert, caring faculty and staff members.

Teachers regularly focus on:

  • blending ages and levels to provide continuous learning
  • opportunities for real-life learning and problem-solving
  • community involvement
  • focusing on genuine assessments
  • understand that learning involves wondering, dreaming, playing, interacting, communicating, exploring, discovering, questioning, investigating, creating, and risk-taking.
