As we lead our students through personalized learning experiences, we stay true to our mission: At CIP we inspire students to become lifelong learners and responsible citizens in our community by providing a challenging and supportive environment! Our Lighthouse Schools Grant focused on the following to enhance the learning experiences of all CIP students:

  • Methods and systems to get to know each student as an individual – using their interests, needs, and identity while designing our instruction.
  • Specific learning objectives for all main content areas with a clear description of what mastery looks like at each grade level. This allows for goal setting, ongoing communication regarding student progress, and for students to move forward when they have completed a learning objective.
  • Providing students with challenging, project based learning experiences based upon their interests and our academic standards. These projects are completed collaboratively and independently and give students an opportunity to apply what they have learned and explore areas of interest in greater depth.    

This work is challenging for both our students and staff, but we believe it is the right work to provide our students with the educational experience they need to be prepared to compete with students not just in Rhode Island, but across the globe.
