The educational philosophy of The City School is well explained in the school motto "I am to learn".
This means we exist or were born to learn and that the process of learning is endless. In the words of Socrates, when a man says 'I Know', he closes his mind to all knowledge. We are all teachers if we can convey what we know to others and we are all students if we have the will to learn and the wisdom to accept our ignorance.
Education is not just a matter of acquiring knowledge or a qualification. The application of that knowledge to widen his or her perceptions and to face life's challenges with courage and conviction, makes a person a true learner.
At The City School we want children not only to acquire education but to go on learning.
In this process we want to involve every parent, teacher and child.
