The San Diego Cooperative Charter School supports a progressive, developmentally based, child-centered community for active and collaborative student learning where shared values of family, diversity, relationship, creativity and academic excellence flourish.
We respect that which makes each child unique and promote the cognitive, imaginative, creative, social, emotional, and physical development of all students. In order to provide high quality educational services, we have built a supportive, cooperative community - a true collaboration of children, families, and school staff, where we embrace diversity and honor the unique contributions of each individual. This environment is intended to enhance the joy of learning for all and to inspire discovery, creativity, and a commitment to lifelong learning. Our vision is to employ differentiated methods to meet each child’s needs and to enable the learner to make connections between the curriculum and the outside world. Knowledge of brain development, multiple intelligences, learning styles, and strategies for differentiation inform instruction in all classes. Service learning and environmental stewardship are integrated into the curriculum in order to promote a strong social ethic in our student population. At San Diego Cooperative Charter all members of the school community work together to promote the success of each learner. Our staff is highly skilled and supported in their endeavors to refine their craft. We continuously monitor our progress toward achieving our goals in order to ensure that we are effectively utilizing available financial and human resources to maximize student performance and exceed district and statewide standards.
