Carbondale New School is located in Carbondale, IL. It is a private school that serves 42 students in grades PK,K-8. Carbondale New School is coed (school has male and female students) and is nonsectarian in orientation.
My 2 daughters went to CNS - a total of 15 years! I volunteered, donated, drove for field trips - anything I could do to support this wonderful school. My girls loved it so much they hated being sick! Their educations were individualized, with a loving and highly competent teaching staff, caring parents always around to help, and a "kindness overall" rule that helped kids thrive. Kids of all "stripes" attend CNS; differences are enjoyed because they learn that everybody has something interesting about them to discover and be discovered. It's a family in so many ways. I wish they had a high school.
This is the best school in Southern Illinois. I had two daughters go to this school. Because children learn at their own paces, one daughter skipped grades. The instruction is exiting, engaging and NEVER boring. One of my daughters hated school until she got to Carbondale New School. She loved school at CNS from day one! We drove a great distance to get to the school, but there are car pools available from just about anywhere in southern Illinois. The small class sizes, the creative instruction and the individual attention has set this school apart from many others.
