Our Structure

Elementary School Mission

The CPCS Elementary School, serving Pre-K through 5th grade, is a supportive community that nurtures the talent of the future leaders of tomorrow. Our rigorous academic program teaches students to creatively solve complex problems and explore and develop their own special talents through learning opportunities in and outside of the classroom. Our graduates are well-rounded, engaged students who recognize the importance of perseverance, collaboration, and teamwork.


Beginning with Children, with local parents in Fort Greene, launched CPCS in 2000. Today CPCS co-locates in 2 buildings. Grades Pre-K through 5 are housed in P.S. 270 and grades 6 through 8 are in P.S. 256.
