CNSS in partnership with Worldmind has recently been approved to become a Colorado public innovation school, serving grades kindergarten through fifth.

An innovative school is generally defined as a public school with a unique approach to education. This allows educators to inspire bold, creative and innovative ideas in their students while maintaining high standards.

CNSS will be enrolling as a public innovation school commencing August 2020.
