Honoring the Past &
Preparing For The Future
As a 90-year-old school, Crane has accumulated many traditions. Although we revel in our traditions, we are also not afraid to venture into uncharted territory to embrace innovative programs and teaching methods. The intentional balance of tradition and innovation is a key element to Crane School's philosophy.
Our traditions build our sense of community and provide a predictability and consistency that our students find comforting. Some of our traditions have carried through since the schools inception in 1928 such as daily assembly, and many traditions have stemmed from innovations that have become essential components within our program.
- Daily Assembly
- Crane Families
- Music Hour
- Thanksgiving Feast
- Service Learning
