School Description:

Countryside School serves a remarkably diverse population of children in grades K-8 whose abilities are at or above grade level; its mission is to foster joy in learning and excellence in education. Through a hands-on, interactive style, students develop creativity along with skills in critical thinking, time management, and written and oral presentation. The elementary students, approximately 15 per grade, learn in combined classes (K/1, 2/3, and 4/5).  Each of these has a team of two teachers, one of whom is the primary contact teacher for each grade, and each occupies a classroom "suite" with a large main room for combined activities and breakout rooms for separate instruction. In middle school (6-8), core academic subjects are balanced with periods for fine arts, world languages, performance, and physical education, continuing the enriched, project-based curriculum. The result is strong academic achievement and balanced growth—intellectual, physical, emotional, and social—for every student. Now in its 23rd year, Countryside remains the only ISACS in the Champaign-Urbana metro area.
