The prestigious private school of joint education The Cambridge School of Weston (CSW) offers effective programs for both American students and foreign boarders - today foreigners represent on the campus of 8 countries.
The Cambridge School of Weston began in 1886: it was founded as a Cambridge school for girls by the forces of Arthur and Stella Gilmore. They also founded the Radcliffe College and the local preparatory department early, so they already had the appropriate experience and were able to make a really outstanding educational institution. In 1918 there was a merger with the Boston Haskell School - the new institution became known as The Cambridge-Haskell School. At the same time, the first symbol of the school was developed - a blossoming flower in the open palm: it was invented by the Lebanese poet Kahlil Gibran, a close friend of the director of the Haskell School, Mary Haskell. In 1931, the school moved about 32 kilometers and is located at the current place, finally getting the name The Cambridge School of Weston (CSW). This was the initiative of director John French: being the heir of the ideas of the famous reformer of education John Dewey, French introduced a lot of innovative details and approaches in the learning process. Many of them are actively used so far: for example, individual attitude to each student, practical training, active responsibility education, a small number of students in classes and on the flow. In 1939, the public administration was accepted at the school - the institution took advantage of the example of New England, a model of the new city assembly. Until now, the whole school (including students and employees) participates in general meetings, jointly takes important decisions and new rules, openly discusses current issues and news.
The Cambridge School of Weston is proud of its teaching staff: approximately 80% of teachers have a degree. They are not indifferent, qualified specialists of their business, who treat students with love and care, they are able to motivate them to achieve personal and educational goals. In one class, 12-14 people are engaged, and the ratio between teachers and children is 6: 1. This makes it possible to give each child a proper amount of attention, carefully monitor his progress and achievements. The director is now working Jane Molding (Jane Molding).
