About us

Central Park East 1 Elementary School (CPE1) was founded in 1974 by teachers, led by educational visionary Deborah Meier. The educational philosophy is rooted in the belief that children must be valued for the experiences, language, and culture they bring to the school. Their skills, knowledge, and understandings are the foundation and starting point of their school learning. The mission of the school is to facilitate learning by providing every child with materials, experiences, and support services that will enable her/him to learn to experience academic, social, and emotional success. Families, teachers, service providers, and community-based collaborators work together to ensure that all children feel competent and confident about their work. Our commitment is to an inclusive approach, cross-age groupings, learning-by-doing, and the use of an integrated curriculum driven by children's interests and abilities.
