At The Cushman School, it has been our mission to develop students as responsible citizens and effective future leaders who maintain a positive, and happy approach to life. The Cushman School Philosophy was created by Dr. Laura Cushman, 90 years ago and it still stands true today: "A school seeks to develop the child mentally, physically and in character growth. To do this, the child must be placed in happy surroundings, be properly adjusted to his work, and have wholesome experiences."
