What our students say

"At City School, teachers will listen to students, and as a whole, the student body and staff can collectively make decisions."

"The staff and students go above and beyond when organizing school initiatives."

"At City School they show you the steps, but it is fully up to the student to take the lead and essentially fly to success."
